October 9, 2005
First called "the greatest chamber orchestra in the world" by Dmitri Shostakovich, the Moscow Chamber Orchestra will celebrate its 50th Anniversary in 2006. The Orchestra's present Music Director, brilliant American pianist/conductor Constantine Orbelian, has brought the MCO into a new era of international activity and acclaim since his appointment in 1991.
|Under Orbelian's leadership the Orchestra was accorded the honor of
"Academic" in its official Russian title (The State Academic Chamber Orchestra
of Russia). Maestro Orbelian and the Moscow Chamber Orchestra play over 120 concerts a
year to sold-out houses worldwide, and are engaged in a highly praised recording series on
the Delos label.
The "dynamic Moscow Chamber Orchestra" (New York Times) is one of the world's great ensembles.
