Ravel: Mother Goose, La valse


Contrasting pieces by two masters of orchestral composition, these live performances capture the energy and movement of three much-loved balletic works; Ravel’s intricate vignettes of childrens’ stories in Mother Goose and ‘choreographic poem’ La valse, and Stravinsky’s epoch-defining Rite of Spring.

One of the oldest professional orchestras in Russia, the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra can trace its lineage back to 1882 and its formation by Tsar Alexander III. In a 25-year collaboration, Yuri Temirkanov has been the orchestra’s principal conductor since 1988.
