Maestro Yuri Temirkanov is returning to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for Rachmaninoff & Tchaikovsky: Temirkanov Returns. The famed Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the St Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, will be paying homage to two of Russia’s finest composers, with Denis Matsuev on the Piano.

The official Boston Symphony Orchestra description for the upcoming event reads:

“At the heart of BSO's Centennial celebrations, Music Director Emeritus Yuri Temirkanov brings authenticity and passion to two classics of the Russian repertoire. Tchaikovsky lays bare his soul in the fourth symphony, which combines fragile beauty and brassy bombast. First Prize winner of the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, Denis Matsuev proves himself the equal to Rachmaninoff’s famous, bravura concerto.”
