Gems of Russian music - the genius P. I. Tchaikovsky and his contemporary, the less known A. S. Arensky

While the work of the world-renown composer, unjustly condemned by himself, are a rare challenge to the orchestra and the conductor Marius Stravinsky on his first visit in Prague, the unusual and not so often performed concerto by Arensky is a great opportunity to present the interpretational mastery of the violin virtuoso Tatiana Samouil, winner of several of the most important world competitions.
