Join the Moscow Philharmonic in an evening of Russian romantic fantasy and tragedy: the bitter-sweet joy and heartbreak of Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet and Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto with violinist Natalia Lomeiko.
This music seethes with anger, numbness and a devil-may-care abandonment. And there is an early Rimsky rarity: Sadko tells the story of a minstrel who set all the sea creatures dancing.

Conductor: Yuri Simonov
Soloist: Natalia Lomeiko, Violin
Rimsky-Korsakov Sadko Opus 5 12′
