Reviews

Gramophone

There are few musicians I'd choose to hear conducting this music more than Pletnev: he keeps it on a tight rein with maximum intensity and a real sense of electricity crackling below the surface; and that's not to say he doesn't reach into the emotional heart of the music. The Manfred is wonderful but then so is Pletnev's gloriously fresh way with [the 1812 Overture], Romeo and Juliet, Marche slave, Francesca da Rimini and the Capriccio italien... The playing of the Russian National Orchestra is thrilling.
