The St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra

The St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra traces its history back to 1931. For more than two decades, the orchestra鈥檚 activity was linked with the Leningrad Radio 鈥 at first a concert orchestra, and soon as a large Symphony Orchestra.


During the war, the Leningrad Radio Symphony was the only orchestra that remained in the besieged city. Despite the fact that in the fi rst winter of the war the orchestra actually ceased to exist, nonetheless, after heroic efforts, in August 1942, headed by K. Eliasberg it performed the Leningrad premiere of Shostakovich鈥檚 Seventh Symphony. Currently, critics argue that "the performance by the St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra can be called highly authentic: there is a feeling that the musicians have inherited from the older generation the tradition of orchestral performance of the 鈥楲eningrad鈥 Symphony". (Tianjin Daily, 2015). Altogether, the orchestra performed more than 300 times during the blockade, and some concerts 鈥 including the premiere of the 鈥淟eningrad鈥 symphony 鈥 were held in the Grand Philharmonic Hall.
