Debut Concert with the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia Orchestra in Rome
I'm sure that Sheherazade is a test-piece for young conductors in Russia. Well it is a test which Kochanovsky passes with flying colours. His gestures were elegant and clear. […] The seascape of the finale was a pictorial riot of sound such as is rarely heard, especially at its climax with three hardworking percussion players' triangle, cymbals and bass drum. Kochanovsky was not just vital in his communication with the orchestra. Every soul in the audience was with him on this adventure.
