Returning to our International Concert Series is one of Russia’s most distinguished orchestras, the Moscow Philharmonic. Conducted by Yuri Simonov, one of the most renowned of all Russian conductors, the orchestra will open their programme with the searing romanticism of Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture.
We are pleased to have the sensationally talented pianist Alexandra Dariescu perform Rachmaninov’s immensely popular Piano Concerto No.2. Now an Honorary Associate Artist of RNCM, where she completed her undergraduate studies, Alexandra Dariescu has dazzled audiences and critics worldwide.
After the interval the orchestra will play their famed interpretation of what many regard to be Shostakovich’s greatest symphonic masterpiece, his 10th Symphony.
