Why See Kansas City Symphony - Tchaikovsky and Glazunov?
A PROGRAM BURSTING WITH RUSSIAN FLAVOR
The Kansas City Symphony and special guest conductor Andrey Boreyko proudly present a rousing program of Russian music, featuring three romantic classical giants that hail from the wintery climes Eurasia - Stravinsky, Glazunov and Tchaikovsky. Marking his KCS debut with a patriotic flourish, Boreyko graduated summa cum laude from the Rimsky-Korsakov Conservatory in Saint Petersburg in the late 80s, going on to win many a coveted conducting competition prize and lead many of the world's leading orchestras including the Hamburg and Vancouver Symphony Orchestras.
Russian violin virtuoso Maria Ioudenitch joins the ensemble to flex her bow skills during the notoriously difficult double-stop-laden finale of Alexander Glazunov's Violin Concerto. A masterful showcase of the composer's technical brilliance and a favorite of soloists and listeners thanks to its fiery fingerwork, lush melodic passages and soaring cadenza. The program also includes Igor Stravinsky's chromatically advanced Chant Funebre, a funeral song composed after the death of his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov, and Tchaikovsky's effervescent and romance-filled Suite No. 3, a piece that electrified its first audience in St. Petersburg upon its debut performance in 1885.
Opening night: 11 January 2019
