VSO: Exciting Russian Classics / by Granville Street

On May 9th, 2009 at 8PM the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra presents 'Exciting Russian Classics' at the Orpheum Theatre.

Join conductor Bramwell Tovey and Alexander Gavrylyuk on piano as they perform such works as: Rimsky-Korsakov Russian Easter Overture, Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 2 in G Major, James Beckwith Maxwell Olympic Commission, Shostakovich The Age of Gold Suite and Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture.

The Orpheum Theatre website bio on Gavrylyuk had this to say about the talented pianist:

"Rubinstein Competition winning piano prodigy Alexander Gavrylyuk is one of the top pianists of his generation, standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Lang Lang and Yundi Li. His performance of Tchaikovsky's other piano concerto will blow you away (if anything, Tchaikovsky's Second Piano Concerto is even more fiery and exciting than his first!)".
