Notes and Editorial Reviews
A new concert hall designed by French architect Xavier Fabre had just been opened at the Mariinsky Theatre, in the shrine of this historic building: the workshop where the sets and costumes from past productions were stored. To mark the 2007 New Year, conductor Valery Gergiev, leading the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, offered a retrospective of the great works that had rung out inside the theatre's walls. On the programme: the overture from Verdi's Force of Destiny, Yuri Bashmet in the finale of Berlioz's Harold in Italy, a Polka by Johan Strauss Jr., Rimsky-Korsakov's Capriccio Espagnol, the second movement from Rachmaninov's Symphony No.2, Liszt's Second Piano Concerto with yefim Bronfman, Stravinsky's Firebird and Borodin's Polovstian Dances.
