The Russian National Orchestra was founded in 1990 by pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev and today is widely recognized as one of the world's top orchestras. Maintaining an active international schedule, the RNO appears in the music capitals of Europe, Asia and the Americas, is a frequent guest at festivals such as Edinburgh, the BBC Proms and Festival Napa Valley, and presents the RNO Grand Festival each September to open the Moscow season.

RNO concerts are often aired on National Public Radio, the European Broadcasting Union, and Russia's Kultura channel. Their discography, launched with a high praised 1991 CD recording of Tchaikovsky's Pathétique, now numbers more than 80 critically acclaimed recordings. The orchestra's recording of Sleeping Beauty, conducted by Mikhail Pletnev, is, according to the BBC, among the most listened to classical music recordings of the last 75 years. In 2004 the RNO became the first orchestra in Russian history to win a Grammy Award.

The RNO is unique among the principal Russian ensembles as a private institution funded with the support of individuals, corporations and foundations in Russia and throughout the world.
