Reviews

GB Opera Magazine

The RNO's sound was lush, at times almost bursting out of the small space of Lincoln Theater... one can't help but be in awe of their collective precision and resonance marked by luxuriant textures and colouring.

What They’re Saying

"[The] American-Russian Festival Orchestra, featuring distinguished players from the Russian National Orchestra and a number of prominent American orchestras...[conveys] a vital message to our participants and observers, that by working together we can share our musical and historical cultures and increase our understanding of one another."
