Founded in 1882, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic is Russia's oldest symphony orchestra. Led by conductor Yuri Temirkanov, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic's performances have been characterized as "thrilling exuberance" (The Washington Post) and "direct, vivid and full of character" (The New York Times). Japanese violinist Sayaka Shoji joins the orchestra for Prokofiev's melodious Violin Concerto No. 2.
