Eugene Onegin and Iolantha in Kislovodsk

A young talented conductor, a short time ago having headed the Philharmonic orchestra, has managed to achieve not only a balanced sound, but interpretation that corresponds to the space stylistics of the Kursal theatre, namely the combination of the chamber refinement of phrasing and  nuances that were worked up; along with ability to build up a grand form out of the musical piece. Kochanovsky avoided catchy but trivial contrasts, the sounding of his orchestra in dynamical respect was rather regularly over the whole act, without losing the expressiveness. The ability to underline the correlation between harmonious composition of the whole and vivid details communicated grandness to the interpretation.
