Music Review: Russian National Orchestra

Date: 24 June 2015
Performers: Mikhail Pletnev (pianist/conductor), Russian National Orchestra
Rating: ***** (5 out of 5)

The five-star rating is reserved for a truly exceptional performance. Everything from the orchestra's blend and tone color to each soloist's accuracy and phrasing has to be just right. Too much of anything is indulgent, and too little leaves one wanting. Mikhail Pletnev's concert this Wednesday was the perfect middle ground, and a certifiable five-star performance.

  1. The Russian National Orchestra is a private institution supported by individuals, corporations and foundations in Russia and throughout the world. Affiliated organizations include the Russian National Orchestra Trust, the Russian Arts Foundation and the American Council of the RNO. Another RNO innovation is Cultural Allies, an ongoing program encompassing exchanges between artists in Russia and the West, and the commissioning of new works.
