Nov. 15, 16, 17, and 19: Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra's Music of Imperial St. Petersburg

Program featuring works by Russian composers writing in imperial St. Petersburg. Special Yale Young Alum Discount!

Grammy-winning Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, America's leading period-instrument orchestra, brings four early Russian composers to the Bay Area for the first time.

Dmitri Bortniansky’s Sinfonia Concertante is a rich example of early Russian Classicism. Maksym Berezovsky’s Symphony in C major is thought to be the first Russian symphony. Anna Dennis, the brilliant young English soprano, makes her Bay Area debut singing arias by Mikhail Glinka, as arranged by Rimsky-Korsakov, and Philharmonia cellist Tanya Tomkins solos in Facius’s Concerto for Violoncello in D minor. This program is led by Steven Fox, Artistic Director of the New York Clarion Society.
