Russian Masters with the Avison Orchestra

Scintillating Stravinsky, Tender Tchaikovsky, Passionate Prokofiev
The Avison Orchestra, Leslie Dala, conductor, George Zukerman, narrator

The Avison Chamber Orchestra returns, under the baton of Leslie Dala with an all Russian theme. Igor Stravinsky’s brilliant orchestration displays the orchestra’s traditional virtuosity in the Pulcinella Suite. Then, immerse yourselves in the wistful nostalgia of Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings and conclude with that wonderful musical confection for children, age 9 to 99 – Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf – with none other than our Artistic Director Emeritus, George Zukerman, narrating the didactic tale of childhood bravery.
