Russian National Orchestra & Mikhail Pletnev

Russian National Orchestra & conductor Mikhail Pletnev
Mischa Maisky, cello

Three legends will meet in concert at the Dzintari Concert Hall – the Riga-born cellist known as the best in the world Mischa Maisky, the most visible pianist and conductor of our era, Mikhail Pletnev, and the leading Russian National Orchestra. The RNO, which was included in 2008 by British magazine Gramophone in its list of the world’s 20 greatest orchestras, embodies the greatest Russian classical music traditions. The orchestra’s Artistic Director since its founding, Mikhail Pletnev, sees the joy of meeting in music as the most important aspect of collaboration, while cellist Maisky never allows his performances to become routine. Passion, impulsiveness and charisma – the key words for this meeting of legends!
