The Mariinsky Orchestra and dazzling conductor Valery Gergiev return to Memorial Hall for the fourth time with two passionate Russian concerts. One of the oldest musical institutions in Russia, founded in the 18th century during the reign of Peter the Great and housed in St. Petersburg?s famed Mariinsky Theatre since 1860, the Orchestra enjoys a long and distinguished history. Valery Gergiev, artistic and general director of the Mariinsky Theatre, is a prominent figure in all the world’s major concert halls, and since 1988 has taken the Mariinsky ballet, opera and orchestra ensembles to more than 45 countries, garnering universal adulation. This is the second appearance in Memorial Hall for pianist Denis Matsuev.
