Rare title for Yuri Temirkanov

The St Petersburg Philharmonic music director was named today honorary conductor of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. The only other maestro ever to hold that title was Leonard Bernstein.

  • I’m really happy for the Maestro Temirkanov.
    Great musician, great conductor and brave person.
    Still remember his production of the Tchaikovsky The Queen of Spades 1984.
    It was incredible to work under his baton.

  • Happy too! This is well deserved he is great conductor! I was at this Queen of Spades and Eugene Onegin and many-many other performances and concerts
