“Put Russian conductor Valery Gergiev on a podium and the usual result is musical fireworks. Pair him with his hometown orchestra, St. Petersburg’s venerable Mariinsky Orchestra, and the chemistry becomes combustible, especially when the sensational Moscow-born pianist Denis Matsuev is a guest” (Chicago Classical Review). These internationally lauded artists present a riveting and iconic Russian program as master conductor Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra make their Krannert Center debut.
