About the St. Petersburg State Symphony OrchestraThe St Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra was established in 1967 and was known as the Orchestra of Ancient and Modern Music until 1985. In 1988, the orchestra began holding concerts in the Mirror Hall of the fa-mous Princes Beloselsky-Belozersky Palace in the heart of St Petersburg. During its existence, the orchestra has performed an outstandingly large and varied repertoire which, next to Russian music, includes 19th century masterworks and 20th century European orchestral music.The St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra is one of PARMA’s top re-cording partners due in part to their well-considered policy of performing music of every epoch, genre and style, with particular attention afforded to the music of living composers.

Examples of the St. Petersburg State Symphony Orchestra’s work:
Arthur Gottschalk’s “Requiem: For the Living” Hodkinson’s
 “Potpourri: 11 Very Short Pieces”:
Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s “Piano Concerto No.1”:
