About the Concert

Excitement and passion are at the heart of this all-Russian season opener!

Hailed as "deftly virtuosic and musically compelling", Baltimore Symphony Violinist Ivan Stefanovic brings his amazing talents to a lyrical concerto that digs deep into Prokofiev's Russian musical roots. Tchaikovsky poured his whole heart and soul into his final work that sums up all the joys and sorrows of life. It’s an emotional masterpiece that has to be experienced live!

Sofia Gubaidulina brings Russian spirit to the American jazz scene of the 1970s in a work that will combine the talents of the Orchestra and members of our partner organization, the Columbia Jazz Band.
