A thrilling champion of the classic Russian repertoire, the Russian National Orchestra shines on this all-Rachmaninoff program. Kirill Karabits, who began his conducting career with the Budapest Festival Orchestra under the tutelage of Iván Fischer, leads from the podium with masterful pianist Mikhail Pletnev joining as the soloist for the darkly virtuosic Second Piano Concerto. The evening concludes with the driving rhythms and high drama of the Symphonic Dances.
“A brilliant, assertive sound, suffused with a particularly Russian sense of drama.”– New York Times on the Russian National Orchestra
“Nothing short of stupendous.”– Denver Post on the Russian National Orchestra
“Intensely original and unfailingly personal.”– International Record Review on Mikhail Pletnev
