Few orchestras can match the @Mariinsky’s authority, blend, and fullness of sound when it is playing the music of its countrymen. Directed by Valery Gergiev, «a born Prokofiev interpreter» (The Guardian, London), the Mariinsky plays complex works by two 20th-century giants who lived in the shadow of Stalin's regime: the Soviet government disapproved of both Prokofiev's emotionally expansive Sixth Symphony and Shostakovich's volatile Ninth. Scriabin's Third Symphony is a radiant, restless tone poem for orchestra; and Strauss' Don Juan is ebullient program music. The powerful and dazzling pianist Denis Matsuev joins for Prokofiev's bold and athletic Second Concerto and Rodion Shchedrin's 12–tone Second Concerto.
