On March 13, the National Philharmonic Orchestra of Russia will perform at the Zaryadye Great Hall, but for the first time there under the baton of  its artistic director and principal conductor Vladimir Spivakov (the NPR previously played with other conductors on this stage, while Vladimir Spivakov directed the Moscow Virtuosi). The maestro will present one of the best carved  and beautiful programs of his collective, which invariably charms the audience. It will feature the masterpieces by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev, inspired by Shakespeare's famed Verona tragedy, as well as the most popular of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos -  the “shining and sprightly” (as Boris Asafiev put it) Third Concerto in C major.
