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

TCHAIKOVSKY Violin Concerto

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV Sheherazade

 

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 its finale.
