Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme
Kalinnikov: Symphony No. 2
Russian music holds a special place in our Maestro’s heart. This concert showcases the very best of Russia’s romantic orchestral offerings. Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise spools out a beautiful Russian melody as though it were silk. The Rococo Variations is Tchaikovsky’s most brilliant work of intimacy. We end the program with a rarely heard work from a contemporary of Tchaikovsky, Vasily Kalinnikov. His second symphony is unsurpassed in its grandeur and Russian majesty.
