Yevgeny Mravinsky achieved international cult status even during his lifetime--a fair accomplishment for a conductor who spent his whole career behind the Iron Curtain, rarely made recordings and almost never toured outside the Soviet bloc. He was appointed principle conductor of the Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) Philharmonic in 1938--just two years after Eugene Ormandy took over the Philadelphia Orchestra from Leopold Stokowski--and held the post for an astounding 50 years, until his death in 1988. The last of a generation of conductors who terrorized their players and demanded near-impossible standards of execution, he often spent months rehearsing a work they had performed many times, adjusting every nuance and fine-tuning every detail. The progress made during those year can be judged by comparing their rare but revealing recordings: for example, the premiere recording of the Shostakovich 5th Symphony (1938, available on this site in a very inexpensive 4-CD set with early recordings of Tchaikovsky, et al), in which a tentative, understaffed orchestra responds with feverish intensity to every bar of the music, and those famous early-60s Tchaikovsky Symphonies, where the same intensity is now joined by breath-taking precision and virtuosity.

The present program is taken from among the dozens of "live" recordings to be issued by various labels over the years in an attempt to supplement the small number of "official" Mravinsky recordings. Made between 1960 and 1970, they document conductor and orchestra in music not usually associated with them, performed with the same obsessive attention to detail we hear in the Russian Romantic works that made up their core repertoire.
