Triple Disc Set! Includes Selections from Glinka, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Copland, Gershwin & More!

This triple disc set contains performances by The Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Dmitri Kitayenko and Lawrence Leighton Smith for 18 magnificent tracks.

Dmitri Kitayenko is one of the great maestros of our time. For decades now he has regularly conducted prestigious orchestras across Europe, America and Asia. In 1969 he won a prize at the first International Herbert von Karajan Conducting Competition and at the age of twenty-nine he was appointed principal conductor of the Stanislavsky Theatre in Moscow. In 1976 he assumed the post of principal conductor of the Moscow Philharmonic. Dmitri Kitayenko's discography encompasses a total of more than 250 recordings, mostly with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Danish National Symphony Orchestra. In recognition of his life's work and outstanding recordings, Dimitri Kitayenko received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" at the ICMA (International Classical Music Awards) in March 2015.

Lawrence Leighton Smith is an American conductor and pianist. With The Moscow Sessions, he became the first American-born conductor to conduct the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra in 1986.

"Born April 8, 1936, Smith was one of the most respected American conductors of the 20th and 21st centuries. His brilliant conducting career began in 1973 when he became a first prize winner of the Dmitri Mitropoulos Competition. Smith went on to appear with nearly every major orchestra in the United States and to tour internationally." - Yale School of Music
