The Mariinsky Label – now on vinyl November 22 2017

Valery Gergiev’s acclaimed 2016 recording of The Nutcracker is now available on vinyl. This Christmas classic comes as a limited edition double LP set on festive red and green vinyl, just in time for the holidays. Housed in a gatefold sleeve with a voucher code for free MP3 and HD FLAC downloads, it joins the Mariinsky Label’s growing selection of high quality vinyl products.

Completing the label’s vinyl catalogue are new versions of past releases by Denis Matsuev and Daniil Trifonov.

Featuring an ‘electrifying’ recording of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 1, Rachmaninov: Piano Concertos Nos 1&3 exhibits Matsuev’s prowess for Russian repertoire. The pianist is renowned for his renditions of music by Russian composers, and was even invited by the Serge Rachmaninov Foundation to perform previously unheard works on the composer’s old piano on the Villa Senar estate in Lucerne. 

Since winning the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 2011, Trifonov has established himself as one of the world’s most exciting pianists and Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1 sees the reissue of his classic Mariinsky Label debut. Performing a unique range of works, including Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1, this new vinyl version features the young pianist’s interpretation Mussorgsky’s Gopak, previously unreleased.
