“From Russia with Love” charts the breathtaking ascent of classical music in Russia. Beginning with the reign of Catherine the Great and continuing onward to Glinka, Mussorgsky, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, and Shostakovich, we will explore the incredible rise and the fall of Russian classical music from 1762 to 1975.
