  • Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2
  • Shostakovich Symphony No. 5

Unfortunately, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic has cancelled their Canadian tour and will therefore not perform at the NAC on February 25, 2017.


One of Russia’s greatest orchestras brings power and passion to Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, a work that expresses the immeasurable suffering the composer’s country endured under Stalin.
