Experience the beautiful sounds of Dvořák, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich, performed by one of the most prominent symphony orchestras in Eastern Europe.
Formed in 1918, the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine has released more than 100 sound recordings, which include both Ukrainian and international repertoires.
The orchestra will be joined by Kiev-born pianist Alexei Grynyuk, who attracted wide attention at the age of 13 when he won the first prize at the Sergei Diaghilev All-Soviet-Union piano competition in Moscow. He went on to achieve numerous awards at international piano competitions, including first prizes at the Vladimir Horowitz International Piano Competition in Kiev and the Shanghai International Piano Competition in China.
This program will feature Dvořák’s Carnival Overture, op. 92; Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto no. 3 in C Major, op. 26; and Shostakovich’s Symphony no. 5, op. 47.
