19:00 Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra
The Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yuri Simonov performs works by Glinka, Sibelius and Rachmaninoff. The Orchestra has generally been highly regarded among Russian orchestras of the twentieth and twenty first centuries. It was founded in 1951 by Samuil Samosud, as the Moscow Youth Orchestra for young and inexperienced musicians, acquiring its current name in 1953. It is most associated with longtime conductor Kiril Kondrashin under whom it premiered Shostakovich's Fourth and Thirteenth symphonies as well as other works. The Orchestra performed with all the best Soviet conductors as well as some outstanding guest conductors such as Lorin Maazel, Charles Munch, Igor Markevitch, Kurt Sanderling, Igor Stravinsky, Zubin Mehta, Krzysztof Penderecki, to name a few, who all left an indelible mark on the orchestra’s history of success. The Orchestra has also flourished under Yuri Simonov, the orchestra's principal conductor since 1998. The geography of the orchestra tours covers more than fifty countries. It gave performances at the best concert halls of the world: in Britain, France, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Lithuania, and Spain, as well as Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea. “The Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra is a unique orchestra. It ranks equal with the Chicago, Cleveland, Amsterdam, Berlin, that is the best of orchestras,” - American critic wrote.
