Russian Troika

The final concert of the season features an all-Russian program that includes the return of the extraordinary violinist Philippe Quint playing Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s daunting Violin Concerto. The program, conducted by Mikhail Agrest, opens with lively and tuneful Overture from Alexander Borodin’s opera Prince Igor. The Symphony is joined by the Los Robles Master Chorale for the final work of the season: Sergei Prokofiev’s powerfully evocative score to Sergei Eisenstein’s dramatic movie Alexander Nevsky.
