Up to Helsinki Finland this week for a live concert from the 2011 Mikkeli Music Festival by the Mariinsky Orchestra of St. Petersburg conducted by Valery Gergiev and featuring pianist Alexander Toradze.

A pretty lively concert, which was recorded direct from the stage at Martti Talvela Hall on July 8th, features a lot of Prokofiev (Cinderella Suite, Piano Concerto Number 1 and extracts from Romeo and Juliet as an encore), Shostakovitch (Piano concerto Number 1 and Symphony Number 6) and Scarlatti as an encore from Toradze.

A little under two hours, so it's on two players - the top player features Prokofiev Cinderella and the Shostakovitch Piano Concerto. And the bottom player features the Prokofiev Piano concerto, Scarlatti Sonata, Shostakovitch Symphony and Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet excerpts as an encore.
