Slovak Philharmonic Concert Hall
Mikhail Glinka – Ruslan and Lyudmila, opera overture
Aram Khachaturian – Violin Concerto in D Minor
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov – Sheherazade, Op. 35
Moscow orchestra brings us the jewels of Russian symphonic music from the 19th and 20th centuries: a riveting overture to a fairy-tale opera by Mikhail Glinka, the founder of Russian national music, a vigorous fiery violin concerto of a distinctive Armenian Aram Khachaturian (the author of unforgottable Sabre Dance from the ballet Gayane, whose 110th birth anniversary we commemorate this year) and a popular suite Sheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov. One of the most creative and prospective violinists of his generation, 27-year old soloist Leonard Schreiber will play the instrument made by Alessandro Mezzadri (Ferrara 1710).
