The Tschaikowski, St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra was founded in the years following World War II. During this time the Orchestra successfully worked in different musical genres and received broad acknowledgement and popularity throughout Russia. In the course of the Orchestra’s history, it has worked with many of the outstanding conductors from the St. Petersburg Conducting School. The Orchestra has undergone much change since its inception, including a change of name and leadership but through all this time it has been developing its repertoire strengths and building a devoted audience. The Orchestra’s repertoire is extremely diverse ranging from the Baroque music right through to music of the 20th Century. The Orchestra’s repertoire includes a range from baroque compositions by Vivaldi, Bach, Handel and contemporary compositions by Schnitke, Banshikov, Desyatnikov, Kancheli. The Orchestra is at home in the works of famous Russian Romantic composers (Tschaikowski, Rachmaninoff) to the classical composers of the 20th Century (Honegger, Poulenc, Hindemith, Stravinsky).   For the past ten years the “Tschaikowski” St. Petersburg Symphony Orchestra has become an ensemble with unlimited musical possibilities including the regular commissioning and performances of new compositions, a testament to the high standard of the Orchestra, which commissions many new works written especially for the Orchestra each season.  Performing the Beethoven Piano Concerto will be Alexander Pirozhenko, an internationally renowned pianist who has appeared on stages in Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, Latvia, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Germany, Austria, France, UK, USA, and many others.
