A Swedish & Russian project

The eternally beautiful music of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony was recorded by St Petersburg Festival Orchestra and its founder and conductor Kristofer Valander. The young Swedish maestro studied at the St Petersburg Conservatorium and in his interpretation of Tchaikovsky one senses not only the intellectual and philosophical principle characterstic of the Western European performance but also emotional openness more typical of the Russian school.
