St. Petersburger Philharmoniker

»This man sees and feels life a thousand times more deeply than all of us together,« said a pianist friend once about Dmitri Shostakovich. Not only did the Soviet composer survive two world wars, he also achieved an extremely dangerous and delicate balancing act in his dealings with the Stalin dictatorship, one that is also reflected in his Sixth Symphony. The symphony was premiered – like so many of his works – by the Saint Petersburg (then Leningrad) Philharmonic Orchestra, one of the country’s oldest orchestras. Yuri Temirkanov has been the orchestra’s chief conductor since 1988 – an impressive record, although his predecessor Yevgeny Mravinsky held the post for 50 years. The 24-year-old high-flyer Emmanuel Tjeknavorian, who made his debut at the Elbphilharmonie as a »Rising Star«, is the soloist for Sibelius’s Violin Concerto.
