This dynamic Russian program features music from one of the most popular ballets of all time and one of the most famous love themes, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake suite and Romeo & Juliet Fantasy Overture. The provocation continues as Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 impresses with excitement and technical virtuosity, and don’t forget to listen out for the stunning instrumental solos in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio Espagnol.
