A journey into the heart of the Russian repertoire. Glinka’s overture erupts with color, rocketing to an exhilarating conclusion. The Introduction to Kovantchina is its opposite: all serenity and delicate beauty. Rhythmic vitality and spontaneity abound in Prokofiev’s most popular piano concerto. Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony – a signature work – reflects deeply personal agonies and triumphs.
