St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra
Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Tracing its storied roots back to 1882, Russia’s oldest symphonic ensemble has set the standard for interpreting Russian repertoire, being lauded as “never short of breathtaking” (San Francisco Chronicle). See for yourself when this outstanding orchestra performs a program that includes Giya Kancheli’s … al Niente, a sonic tapestry of ravishing sounds and silences dedicated to conductor Yuri Temirkanov, as well as Tchaikovsky’s treasured Piano Concerto No. 1 with Denis Kozhukhin and excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov’s nationalistic opera based on two Russian legends.
