Vladimir Altschuler conductor
Alexander Sitkovetsky violin

Shostakovich Symphony No. 9 in E flat, Op. 70
Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto in D, Op. 35
Tchaikovsky 'Romeo and Juliet' Fantasy Overture

One of Russia's great orchestras brings us treasures from the Romantic repertoire alongside Shostakovich's sparkling ninth symphony. 'Romeo and Juliet' has inspired many composers to write great works and Tchaikovsky's 'Romeo and Juliet', featuring arguably the greatest love theme ever written, was his first masterpiece. His sumptuous Violin Concerto is full of passion: a glittering musical gem.

'Sitkovetsky's confident, entirely natural musicianship, is what sets him apart from the crowd' The Gramophone
