Misha Rachlevsky, conductor

This dynamic, young ensemble makes its Center for the Arts debut under the baton of its founder and music director, Misha Rachlevsky. Chamber Orchestra Kremlin is composed of some of Russia’s finest string players, who have helped the orchestra earn international recognition as one of Russia’s leading ensembles. “Uncanny musicality, precision, and verve…the sheer amount and velvety warmth of sound was thrilling,” says the San Francisco Classical Voice. Founded in 1991, this gifted orchestra has carved a niche for itself, performing to a devoted audience at its home in Moscow, maintaining a full schedule of international concerts and festivals, and producing more than 30 recordings. This performance includes a unique opportunity for audience participation.  After performing music of the Russian masters in the first half of the concert, Maestro Rachlevsky will poll the audience and let the majority choose the music that the orchestra will perform in the second half of the program.. “This is an ensemble of remarkably tight discipline and heart-on-the-sleeve expressiveness.” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
