“Temirkanov makes Prokofiev’s well-worn Classical Symphony sound invitingly fresh through his swift tempos and painstaking observance of rhythm, accent and dynamic contrast . . . But the real star here is the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, [with] bold brass, lively woodwinds and sumptuous strings.” — Classics Today

Yuri Temirkanov leads the St. Petersburg Philharmonic in the music of Russian composer Sergei Prokofiev, including his Classical Symphony and Lieutenant Kite.
