Serious music played by the New Russia State Symphony Orchestra will be a great gift for both Muscovites and guests to Moscow. Directed by Yuri Bashmet, known as the Alto King, the orchestra features a fascinating repertoire that comprises some of the best classical and contemporary music compositions. It always demonstrates a high level of music-making by combining the inimitable sounds of instruments with the refined taste and sublime spirituality of performers. These talented musicians are the absolute highlights of many annual music festivals.© 2016-2020 moscovery.com
