The Mariinsky Orchestra and Valery Gergiev return for two performances of Russian orchestral masterpieces. This performance features pianist Denis Matsuev in Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 alongside Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, originally written for piano but performed by the orchestra in an arrangement by Maurice Ravel. Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra will also receive the 2015 UMS Distinguished Artist Award at this Ford Honors Program concert; a gala dinner after the concert raises funds to support UMS education programs.
