The Youth Symphony Orchestra of Russia led by the eminent violist and conductor Yuri Bashmet comes to Singapore in its debut Asian tour!

Formed in 2012, the Orchestra has performed throughout Russia including the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, and at the concert halls of Berlin, Brussels, Geneva and Vienna to critical acclaim. With 90 young musicians handpicked from auditions held in cities across Russia, the Orchestra is set to thrill audiences with its heart-stirring performance.  

The special moments worth coming for:   

  • Hear the ‘strong-willed, passionate and inspired playing’ (Kultura) of Tatiana Samouil who embodies the best traditions of the Russian violin school. 
  • See the poise, confidence, and musical maturity of our very own Chloe Chua beyond her tender 11 years as she shares the stage with Tatiana in Vivaldi’s double violin concerto – her first orchestral performance after her stunning win at the 2018 Menuhin Competition.
  • Be the first in Asia to experience Journey Through the Orchestra and enjoy this wondrous epic work full of charm and surprise by the Kyrgyzstan-born composer Kuzma Bodrov.
  • Feel the emotion, meditation, humour and grandeur of the most beloved works by the two greats of Russian classical music: Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich. 
  • Meet the remarkable future makers of classical music from Russia and Singapore in a celebration of 50 years of friendship between both countries.
