A Fundraising Concert by the Russian Virtuosi of Europe

It’s always a pleasure highlighting interesting venues and concerts, and this event looks particularly exciting. The Russian Virtuosi of Europe Chamber Orchestra will be performing at the Rossotrudnichestvo Centre in London on Tuesday September 18th 2012 at 7.oopm. This fundraising concert will be followed by an exclusive reception.
The programme is predominantly Romantic and will include the following orchestral favourites:

Mozart – Allegro from Divertimento for Strings in D major, KV 136

Tchaikovsky – Andante Cantabile from String Quartet No.1 Op.11

Grieg – Holberg’s Suite, Op.40

Tchaikovsky – Melodie for violin and string orchestra (arr. Yuri Zhislin) from Souvenir d’un lieu cher Op.42

Bartok – Dances 5 and 6 from the Rumanian Dances Sz. 68.

The Russian Virtuosi of Europe brings together some of the finest string players from Russia and the former USSR, who now live in Western  Europe. Formed by London-based Russian violinist Yuri Zhislin in 2004, the ensemble comprises musicians who have enviable lists of awards and prizes in their native countries, as well as worldwide.

The RVOE artists enjoy busy and successful careers as teachers, chamber musicians, solo performers, leaders and principals of outstanding chamber and symphony orchestras.  The Russian Virtuosi gave their highly successful debut at the Wigmore Hall in June 2004 and have since enjoyed a series of concerts in Europe and two South American tours.    They regularly appear at major venues across Europe, including the Kings Place, St John’s Smith Square and Cadogan Hall in London, as well as Salle Gaveau in Paris.

The unique combination of the Russian School of instrumental playing and brilliant ensemble skills makes this group one of the most exciting and innovative ensembles on today’s musical scene.

The concert and reception is arranged by Russian pianist, Olga Balakleets, Director of Ensemble Productions. For tickets and more information you can e mail admin@ensembleproductions.co.uk or call +44 (0)20 8832 7424.
