This performance of the RNO struck a magical chord with the audience! Their precision, vibrancy, and richness of sound resulted in a long ovation and encore. The young, extremely gifted guest artist's performance was absolutely AMAZING!

Named Moscow’s top orchestra in a Gramophone magazine poll of international music critics, the Russian National Orchestra has been the toast of the music world ever since its first concert in Moscow in 1990.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary, the orchestra returns to Cal Performances for a concert featuring founder Mikhail Pletnev conducting Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9, Tchaikovsky’s beloved Violin Concerto, with violinist Stefan Jackiw, and Pletnev’s own song cycle, based on three poems by William Butler Yeats, featuring soprano Lisa Delan.
