Press Gazette: Moscow ensemble brings crowd to its feet – twice

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

By Warren Gerds • October 3, 2010

Chamber Orchestra Kremlin earned two standing ovations Saturday night to get another season of Brown County Music Association concerts off to a solid start.

The 17 musicians from Moscow poured splendor into Ralph Holter Auditorium of Green Bay West High School.

Youth was present. Many of the players seem to be in their 20s.

Most impressive on the evening was “Concerto in D Minor for Two Violins” by Johann Sebastian Bach. Two female violinists from the orchestra stood out front and dove into the energy and rich tapestry piece. Seeing how they led the orchestra and how they finessed where their instruments rose, raced and interacted was fascinating. That was the only piece not led by founder and music director Misha Rachlevsky, who conducts without a score. His attention to detail reaps rewards all around…

We open with one of Russia’s most heralded chamber ensembles. Music director Misha Rachlevsky emigrated from Moscow as a rising young violinist in the 1970s. With the fall of communism he returned in 1991 to found a chamber orchestra comprising some of Russia’s finest young string players. Whether through widely sold CDs or mesmerizing concerts, the orchestra wins praise for bringing passion, flawless ensemble and majestic artistry to every performance.
