What a mind-boggling journey Russia undertook from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s! This vast nation went from grand imperialism, through glorious revolution, to crushing Soviet oppression. These transformations are reflected in the symphonic compositions of each era. From the cheerful, proud marches of Tchaikovsky to the sardonic, jagged notes of Shostakovich, we hear a nation experiencing profound changesyet remaining its undeniably Russian self throughout.
Following the performance, enjoy a complimentary cocktail reception where you can meet the Fellows!
