For almost seven decades, the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra has been recognized as one of the foremost interpreters of the classic Russian composers. An L.A. Times critic recently said the orchestra ‘might well be the world’s least-heralded great orchestra’. Since Pavel Kogan became Music Director he has earned the orchestra a high reputation for artistic excellence and in 2011 his name went into a list of the ten greatest conductors of the 20th century. Along with a line-up of virtuosic young soloists this series of concerts celebrating the key works of Tchaikovsky is a treat not to be missed.

Part of Zurich International Concert Series 2012-13.

6.30pm: Pre-concert performance
A performance in the Culford Room of Schumann’s String Quartet in A minor, Op.41 No.1 by the Hersant Quartet, formed of students from the Royal College of Music.
