19:00 Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra (Russia)
The Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yuri Smirnov will perform various compositions by Claude Debussy, Frederic Chopin and Hector Berlioz. 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 has also flourished under Yuri Simonov, the orchestra's principal conductor since 1998. In recent years it has performed in Britain, France, Germany, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Lithuania, and Spain, as well as Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea.
