St. Petersburg Philharmonic Inaugurates International Celebration of Russian Day in New York

St. Petersburg Philharmonic
Kathryn King Media

In 1992, June 12th was set aside by the Russian government as "Russian Day" - the national holiday of the Russian Federation. Since that time the holiday has been celebrated annually in Russia, but in 2015, for the first time Russian Day will be marked by festivities in five countries on the same day. This year five of Russia's most famous ensembles, each one a jewel in the crown of Russian culture, will perform in prominent venues in Europe, the Middle East, Asia and the Americas. In five countries on four continents, 550 artists, 10,000 spectators and millions of TV viewers will be able to participate in the celebrations of the Russian Day International Series.  

New York / Carnegie Hall

The St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra - "probably the world's greatest orchestra" (The Guardian) - will perform two of the best loved compositions of the Russian standard repertoire, Symphony No. 4 by Tchaikovsky and Symphony No. 5 by Shostakovich, under the leadership of Deputy Artistic Director Nikolai Alexeev. Tickets, ranging in price from $12.50 to $100, are on sale now at 212-247-7800 or online at St. Petersburg Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall.   The St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra is Russia's oldest symphonic ensemble, tracing its origins to a group of music-loving aristocrats who founded Europe's first Philharmonic Society in the 19th century. The St. Petersburg Philharmonic we know today has earned near-legendary status as the pre-eminent exponent of the modern Russian symphonic tradition. With Deputy Artistic Director Nikolai Alexeev alternating conducting duties with Music Director and Principal Conductor Yuri Temirkanov in recent times, the SPPO has maintained an ambitious schedule of worldwide touring and recording, built on the foundation laid by the great Yevgeny Mravinsky, the Orchestra's conductor from 1938-1988. The Orchestra's performances in the U.S. have been characterized as "breathtaking" (San Francisco Chronicle), "stunning" (Palm Beach Post), "simply profound" (Baltimore Sun) and, according to the New York Times, "Voluptuous, seductive, almost bursting out of its clothes."  Read the rest of the article here
