Petrushka is the tale of a puppet who after being murdered by his rival, returns to haunt his master, and one of Stravinsky's orchestral masterpieces. The Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto maintains its status as one of the most beautiful, thrilling and beloved works in the repertoire. This concert features a kaleidoscopic transcription of Islamey for full orchestra by Sergei Lyapunov.
