The members of this orchestra set a new standard in Russia's tradition of symphonic mastery. Composed of the country's leading symphonic virtuosos and led by the electrifying conductor and violinist Vladimir Spivakov, the National Philharmonic of Russia has quickly established itself as the finest and most exciting orchestra to emerge from Russia in many years. Their UMass Amherst program includes the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 and Romeo and Juliet, Liadov's The Enchanted Lake, and Prokofiev's Four Pieces from Romeo and Juliet Suites.
