New video added to Denis Matsuev's YouTube channel: Valery Gergiev and Denis Matsuev in the documentary “Symphony accompanied by the rumble of wheels”The 10th Easter festival headed by Valery Gergiev turned into a marathon for the musicians: 18 cities, 4 borders, 2 concerts a day. The spectators perceive the festival as a festive occasion but very few of them think about what a distance have the participants covered, how long have they slept, how their instruments were transported. In the documentary “Symphony accompanied by the rumble of wheels” you can watch the festival from Valery Gergiev’s, Denis Matsuev’s and the Mariinsky Symphony Orchestra’s point of view. In the movie you can hear compositions by Ravel, Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Verdi. The documentary was shot in 2011. Direction and script by Alexey Burykin.
