Chamber Music Concerts presents:
Russian String Orchestra
Friday, November 9th at 7:30 p.m. in the Music Recital Hall
Founded in 1991 and comprised of Russia’s finest young string players, the Russian String Orchestra has carved a niche for itself under the creative baton of its founder/music director Misha Rachlevsky. The RSO’s warmth and high energy create addictive performances that stay with listeners long after the last note has been played. The orchestra has performed nearly 2,000 concerts in Moscow, 24 countries in Europe, North and South America, and the Far East. The orchestra’s discography of over 30 CDs has received widespread international acclaim, such as the Diapason d’Or award in France, Critics Choice in London’s Gramophone, Critics Choice in The New York Times, and Record of the Year award in Hong Kong. Of about 1000 compositions in the orchestra’s repertoire, over 20 were written especially for the orchestra by composers from Russia, Europe and the USA.
Elgar – Serenade for Strings in E Minor, Op. 20
