Russian Romantics

  • Richmond Pentecostal Church

This concert will feature works by two of Russia's most celebrated composers; Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev. The 2nd Symphony by Tchaikovsky, known as the “Little Russian” is based on Ukrainian folk songs. It's joyful disposition was immediately well received and it is still one of Tchaikovsky's favoured works. Prokofiev's 3rd piano concerto is the most popular of his five concertos and it radiates a crisp vitality that allows the soloist and orchestra to maintain a balanced partnership while enjoying Prokofiev's inventive prowess in punctuating lyrical passages with witty dissonances. Mariya Orlenko will thrill you with her dazzling performance!
