Diego Matheuz conductor

Guy Braunstein violin

Mussorgsky Night on the Bare Mountain (arr. Rimsky-Korsakov)

Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto


Rimsky-Korsakov Scheherazade

An evening of all-Russian fire and fantasy, from Mussorgsky’s Night on the Bare Mountain (as featured in  Disney’s Fantasia) to Rimsky-Korsakov’s tale of one thousand and one nights. In between, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, written as the composer attempted to recover from his disastrous marriage, stands as one of the most spectacular concertos of all time, especially at the euphoric, dazzling brilliance of the finale.
