Review: "Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra: A Welcome Invitation"

A review of my recent performance with the Mariinsky Orchestra on tour at Cornell University. 

Guest conductor Ignat Solzhenitsyn held the podium like a controlled tempest, injecting just the sort of energy expected of the all-Russian program. The palette at his disposal was accordingly rich with contrast. Smooth yet sometimes-rustic strings meshed with a superb wind section (the true litmus test of any such orchestra), while clarion brass mediated between the two with equal shares of rough and smooth.
