St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra
Temirkanov, Lugansky and the St Petersburg Philharmonic play Prokofiev and Rimsky-Korsakov – and if you’re a fan of Russian music, that’ll tell you all you need to know. It’s always a thrilling occasion when this most celebrated of Russian orchestras visits Symphony Hall: and tonight they show their mettle in two of Russia’s most spectacular orchestral showpieces, Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Add the masterly Nikolai Lugansky on piano for an evening of Russian music at its most electrifying.
