EMMA Concert: Russian National Orchestra
09:30pm | Lewis Auditorium
The Russian National Orchestra was founded in 1990 by pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev. The orchestra has since then been described as “a living symbol of the best in Russian art”. The orchestra’s recording of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Beintus’s Wolf Tracks, conducted by Kent Nagano and narrated by Sophia Loren, Bill Clinton, and Mikhail Gorbachev, received a 2004 Grammy Award, making the RNO the first Russian orchestra to win the recording industry’s highest honor.
