“Try to imagine your favourite combination of power, softness and luxury — dark chocolate and whipped cream, iron fists in velvet gloves, a sports car lined in rich leather — and you can begin to imagine the experience of hearing the Stradivarius Ensemble of the Mariinsky Orchestra.”
- John Terauds, Musical Toronto, October 2012

Music for strings like you’ve never heard it before: the very best string players from the Mariinsky Orchestra on some of the world’s very best instruments. The Mariinsky Theatre Stradavarius Ensemble has a sound like none other, thanks to the fact that they are lucky enough to play on some of the most famous and historic instruments by Stradivari, Amati, Guarneri and others. Valery Gergiev, their founder, conducts his renowned ensemble in music of strength, depth, beauty and brittle energy.
