As a pioneer of classical Russian ensembles, the Mariinsky Orchestra is known to “move as if with a single mind and always with purposeful passion” (London Times). The program begins with an only-in-Washington performance of Mosolov’s The Iron Foundry, and later Daniil Trifonov joins forces with his countrymen for his own recently composed Piano Concerto (performed in only two cities so far).

Performance Timing: Part One - 54 min.; Intermission - 17 min.; Part Two - 40 min.
