Tchaikovsky's motherland - festival in Udmurtia

Debut Concert with Svetlanov Symphony Orchestra
It is already obvious that this young man is a phenomenon. He is uniquely sophisticated in his sense of music and style. The works of Mussorgsky, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky he conducts with inspiration and youthful drive, enjoying pathetic moments, causing the orchestra to express emotions of ecstatic power (managing to avoid hysterical tear). Easily and elegantly he took the musicians away from heroic swing to delicate and tender pianissimo so that the orchestra of 120 instruments sounds like a warm sensuous whisper.
