Don't miss the Moscow Philharmonic

The legendary Moscow Philharmonic completes our trio of Russian ensembles, under their distinguished music director, Yuri Simonov.

Once again, we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution, featuring works by the three great Soviet composers Shostakovich, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov.  

Freddy Kempf joins the orchestra to perform Rachmaninov’s monumental Piano Concerto No. 3, with Prokofiev’s spectacular take on Shakespeare bringing the concert to a close. Book tickets
