Description

A musical treat to really raise the spirits! See Misha Rachlevsky and his renowned ensemble of young Russian string players in a slightly different light. Rousing and dynamic, these early evening shows will take your breath away as the orchestra perform a wide range of delightful, and very lively, classical works inspired by movies, dance, opera, theatre and travel. Be carried along by their 'infectious musical energy and talent' ***** (SouthsideAdvertiser.biz, 2018) including several virtuosic solo performances. Gershwin and Piazzolla mix easily with Brahms, Dvorak and Tchaikovsky. 'An unashamed crowd pleaser' ***** (ThreeWeeks, 2017).

This act is absolutely brilliant. I am so glad that I got to see this orchestra perform and I would definitely go to another of their performances.
What I loved about the show:
- The music that they played was extremely uptempo and lively, and it was so impressive to witness the speed with which the musicians were able to play their instruments;
- It was such a pleasure to see the interactions between the musicians and to see them having so much fun when they were playing;
- The quality and skill level was absolutely phenomenal;
- In between songs, the conductor gave lots of interesting information about the pieces that the orchestra played.
Congratulations to the orchestra for putting together such an enjoyable performance. Thank you for entertaining me!

They manage to deliver two seemingly contradictory experiences within a single show: the grandeur of a string orchestra—reduced in number, but certainly...
