St. Petersburg Philharmonic

Feb23
3:00 PM
Yuri Temirkanov
Sunday, February 23, 2014

Marking his 25th season as artistic director and principal conductor, Yuri Temirkanov and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic present an all-Russian program with Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 2, considered to be among the composer’s finest works and featuring one of his most luscious melodies. Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto starts simply with a hauntingly beautiful melody in the solo violin, played here by dynamic newcomer Vilde Frang, and concludes with a rousing Spanish dance, complete with castanets.
