Diego Matheuz conductor

Ray Chen violin

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 in the euphoric, dazzling brilliance of the finale.

6.15-6.50pm Join us for a free pre-concert talk in the DMH auditorium to find out more about tonight’s artists and delve into the background behind the music.
