The Russian National Orchestra has been described as “a living symbol of the best in Russian art” (Miami Herald) and “as close to perfect as one could hope for” (Trinity Mirror). The orchestra’s recording of Sleeping Beauty is among the most listened to classical music recordings of the last 75 years, and their recording of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf and Beintus’s Wolf Tracks received a 2004 Grammy® Award, making them the first Russian orchestra to win this honor.
