Praised for his “full-blooded and engrossing” musicianship by the UK Telegraph, Gergiev will conduct another unforgettable evening of music in Helzberg Hall. The great Russian pianist Denis Matsuev, who played magnificent 2016 Series recital, will join Gergiev and Orchestra for Rachmaninov's dazzling Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini!
