Rimsky-Korsakov and St Petersburg
With Michael Tilson Thomas and the London
Symphony Orchestra, led by: John Georgiadis.
From The Rite of Spring to Star Wars, much of this century's most highly regarded music lives in the shadow of one man. Last spring, Michael Tilson
Thomas and the London
Symphony Orchestra mounted a festival tracing the influence of Rimsky-Korsakov and his circle on the music of the last
100 years. This programme includes excerpts from such works as Night on a Bare
Mountain and The Polovtsian Dances. The words of Rimsky-Korsakov are read by Peter Ustinov.
