Brooklyn Symphony Concert Features Russian Favorites

June 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

$16 - $25

To close its 43rd season, the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra will present three contrasting Russian works. Modest Mussorgsky’s “Night on the Bald Mountain” is fun for orchestra players and audiences alike, possibly best known for its appearance in Walt Disney’s “Fantasia”. The BSO is delighted to feature its principal cellist Cynthia Racine as the soloist in Dmitri Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto. Originally written for the great Rostropovich, this acerbic piece is a supreme challenge for any performer. The program ends with Alexander Borodin’s majestic Second Symphony. Composed in 1876, it was a major influence on American film music; its opening theme can also be heard in the Broadway classic “Kismet”.
