Following popular demand, an extra date has been added to the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra concert to take place at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus in Athens on Tuesday, June 26.
This is the first time the historic orchestra is coming to Greece and the most famous compositions of great Russian musician Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky will be performed at the foot of the Acropolis.
The acoustics and the view of the ancient marble theater are equally breathtaking, and the music of Tchaikovsky will contribute to a rare and memorable experience.
The Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra is comprised of 100 outstanding musicians, conducted by Vladimir Fedoseyev — a living legend in Russia. The piano soloist is Varvara Nepomnyashchaya, another highly acclaimed name in classical music.
The orchestra was founded in 1930 as the Grand Symphony Orchestra of All Union Radio and Central Television, and was the first Soviet symphony orchestra. It was also the first to perform outside the USSR.
