The 'perfectionist' on tour

After having been celebrated for his concerts with the Hamburg Radio  Symphony Orchestra as an "established authority of the Russian soul" and a "perfectionist", Dimitri Kitaenko led the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra "to an orchestral triumph". According to a review in the Mannheimer Morgen the orchestra pulled out all the stops for Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, Tchaikovsky's Capriccio Italien and Dmitri Shostakovich's First Piano Concerto.
