Momentous performance: Bashkiria State Orchestra gave first concert at St. Petersburg Philharmonic

On December 7, the National Symphony Orchestra of the Republic of Bashkortostan performed for the first time in the Great Hall of the St. Petersburg Philharmonic.

The concert was held with the participation of star soloists: laureate of the 1st prize of the Queen Elizabeth Competition in Brussels, Andrei Baranov (violin), winner of the Grand Prix of the Glazunov International Competition in Paris and the 5th International Cello Competition in Berlin by Arseny Chubachin (cello) and Honored Artist of Russia Alexander Gindin (piano). Honored Artist of Bashkortostan Dmitry Kryukov conducted the concert.

The concert program included masterpieces of classicism and late romanticism: the Egmont overture, the Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello, and Piano, and Orchestra by Ludwig van Beethoven and the Symphonic Poem “Thus Said Zarathustra” by Richard Strauss.

The National Symphony Orchestra of the Republic of Bashkortostan is the calling card of the academic musical culture of the republic. The collective came into the spotlight of the Russian music arena over the past year with a successful performance at the P.I. Tchaikovsky Concert Hall, the S. Saydashev Great Concert Hall, and the VI Symphony Forum of Russia.
