PRESS RELEASE

Schubert and Schumann are great romantics, creators of a new lyrical and psychological direction in the music of Western Europe. Glinka is the founder of Russian symphony. All three composers made human feeling the center of their artistic work. Even now, their musical legacy touches the most delicate strings of the human heart. Vladimir Gorbik and his Capital Symphony Orchestra offer you a chance to delve into the wonderful works of 19th century emotion.

The first part of the concert will feature F. Schubert's renowned "Unfinished" Symphony, and R. Schuman's Manfred Overture, so rarely performed in Russia. These compositions share a common depth of romantic experience, refined melodism, and transparent orchestral texture. The second part will primarily consist of symphonic treasures by Glinka: Waltz-Fantasia, "Kamarinskaya," and two "Spanish overtures" – "Jota Aragonesa" and "Summer Night in Madrid."

The Capital Symphony Orchestra was founded in 2017 as an international music project. Its founder, artistic director, and conductor is Moscow Conservatory Assistant Professor Vladimir Gorbik, who performs his artistic work on two continents, in Moscow and New York. In 2019, the conductor's work was recognized by The Recording Academy with a GRAMMY nomination.
