Valery Gergiev in New York

Valery Gergiev is a famous conductor at Mariinka Theater in Saint Petersbourg, Russia. He is currently principal guest conductor at Metropolitan Opera. Few people beyond Russia know, that Gergiev is of Ossetian descent, he is an actual ethnic Ossetian, that received his initial musical education in Vladikavkaz in North Ossetia. I was glad to see my compatriot in today’s paper.
