Scottish Opera celebrates Russian music this season, with a production of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin and a series of Russian operas in concert. In this one-off performance for the Ayr Concert Series, The Orchestra of Scottish Opera and conductor Mikhail Agrest, resident for many years at St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre, offers works by three of the country’s greatest composers. Mussorgsky’s evocative prelude to his great, historical opera and his incomparable song cycle, written at the very peak of his compositional powers, are followed by Borodin’s irresistible Polovtsian Dances from Prince Igor. They conclude with Tchaikovsky’s wonderfully melodious and too-often neglected Third Symphony.
