Valery Gergiev

Valery Gergiev conducting the famous Mariinsky Theater Orchestra at the Athens Megaron. I was lucky enough to be in the audience. He gave an astonishing performance of Mahler's 5th Symphony, a big revelation for me, although I have listen to this masterpiece hundreds of times, in the last 30 years... All the tension is in his hands, which are like rubber..On the first part, the exquisite Tchaikovsky's violin concerto, soloist the great Leonidas Kavakos. An unforgettable evening..
