Video of the day: Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations with soloist Mischa Maisky

Gramophone Mon 14th May 2018

The Frankfurt RSO has posted a complete filmed performance of Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations with Mischa Maisky

Mischa Maisky has a long history with Tchaikovsky's Rococo Variations. He has recorded the work twice for DG, firstly (in 1991) with the Philharmonia Orchestra and conductor Giuseppe Sinopoli ('a splendid account', according to Gramophone's Michael Kennedy), and secondly (in 1997) with the conductorless Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

The Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra has just posted a complete performance of the Rococo Variations on their Youtube channel, and Maisky and conductor Paavo Järvi make for a fascinating partnership. The performance was recorded live in April and, as with all Frankfurt RSO videos, the production quality is excellent. Enjoy the complete video below:
