Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dmitri Kitaenko is among the leading Russian conductors of his generation. Though generally overshadowed by his contemporary Yuri Temirkanov, as well as older-generation figures like Kiril Kondrashin and Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Kitaenko has held several prestigious conducting posts and has made a spate of critically praised recordings for a variety of major labels in both operatic and symphonic repertory largely dominated by Russian composers. Kitaenko was born in Leningrad, on August 18, 1940. Here is a complete performance of Stravinsky's marvelously colorful ballet, The Firebird.
