Winter Festival: Russian Panorama

March 5-24

Winter Festival 2019

Featuring the music of Rachmaninov, Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, and more.

CMS traverses the turbulent historical landscape of Russia through its vastly expressive music. From the glorious musical outpourings of the age of the tsars and the Russian Empire to the audaciously creative period between the wars, and into and beyond the Soviet era, Russian music has told the story of its country and people like no other. Each program concludes with one of Russia’s incomparable chamber music blockbusters, works of symphonic scale and excitement.
