Description

RUSSIAN WINTER FESTIVAL II

Rossen Milanov, conductor
Alexander Gavrylyuk, piano
Columbus Symphony Chorus – Ronald Jenkins, chorus director

Program:
Mussorgsky: Coronation Scene from Boris Godunov
Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 15 in A Major, Op. 141
Tchaikovsky: Hymn of the Cherubim

This thrilling program featuring the CSO Chorus will warm up your winter with three classics of Russian music. Selections include Mussorgsky’s powerful Coronation chorus from his opera Boris Godunov and Shostakovich’s final symphony, a fascinating work that integrates quotations from Rossini’s William Tell Overture and Wagner’s ‘Ring’ operas with its original themes. Soloist Alexander Gavrylyuk takes the spotlight in Rachmaninoff’s glittering Rhapsody for piano and orchestra. For a glimpse of the Russian Orthodox religious tradition, the concert will close with the hauntingly beautiful Hymn for unaccompanied chorus by Tchaikovsky.
