The Russian National Orchestra
Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 7:30 pm
Founded in 1990 by pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletney, the Russian National Orchestra quickly established itself as one of the foremost ensembles to be found anywhere. Heard frequently on NPR, the orchestra is the first from Russia to win a Grammy and many of its more than 80 recordings are widely acclaimed. But of course, neither radio broadcasts nor recordings can replace the power and beauty of a live performance by an orchestra Gramophone lists as one of the top 20 orchestras in the world.
