Saluting our partnership with the Russian Museum of Art and its fall exhibit of folk art, we open and close with beautiful music inspired by Russian folk tales: Tchaikovsky’s incidental music for The Snow Maiden and the Divertimento from Stravinsky’s “Tchaikovsky” ballet, The Fairy’s Kiss—a tribute to Tchaikovsky himself, the composer Stravinsky loved the most.
