Summary:

Gramophone Young Artist of the Year in 2007, Vasily Petrenko has been lighting up the podium and winning wide-spread accolades since he became Principal Conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic in 2006, the youngest in the orchestra’s 165-year history. His first recording for AVIE was a rare double-bill of Russian operas – Rothschild’s Violin by Fleishman and Shostakovich’s The Gamblers (AV 2096). He follows up with more Russian fare, though of a lighter, more popular nature – excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s ballets Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker.
