Chamber Orchestra Kremlin has earned national and international recognition as one of the world’s leading ensembles. Their 2006-2007 tour will culminate in a concert at Carnegie Hall, but you can hear them at the Silver Center for the Arts on the Plymouth State University campus Nov. 9, beginning at 7 p.m.

 orchestraThe orchestra includes some of Russia’s finest young string players, and has carved out a niche under the creative baton of Mb>founder and music director Misha Rachlevsky.

Elaine Schmidt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wrote of the orchestra, “This is an ensemble of remarkably tight discipline and heart-on-the-sleeve expressiveness. The combination is completely compelling. … These are remarkable players playing with remarkable unity.”

Rachlevsky was born in Moscow. His violin studies began at age five and continued through the well-traveled path of the Russian school of string playing. His lifetime affinity for chamber music and chamber orchestra repertoire began at the College of the Moscow Conservatory and the Gnessin Academy of Music. After leaving the Soviet Union in 1973, he lived and worked in different countries on three continents, settling in the U.S. in 1976.

In addition to an active schedule presenting concerts and attending festivals in Moscow, the 10-year-old chamber orchestra has an award-winning catalog of more than 20 CDs and an increasing international demand for performances. Orchestra information and music samples are online at www.chamberorchestrakremlin.ru/.

At Silver, the orchestra will perform Stravinsky’s Concerto in D, Prokofiev’s Visions Fugitives, Op. 22 and the Pulitzer Prize-winning Symphony No. 2 for Strings by John Corigliano.

Tickets are $30-$25 adults, $28-$23 seniors and $25-$20 youth. For tickets and information contact the Silver Center Box Office, (603) 535-ARTS.
