Young Siberian pianist Denis Matsuev performs Rachmaniov's ever-popular Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini.

Yuri Temirkanov has been Music Director and Principal Conductor of the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra since 1988 and, with this orchestra, he regularly undertakes major international tours and recordings.
