An old-school institution with a suitably old-fashioned chief in Yuri Temirkanov, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic returns to Carnegie Hall for a pair of gigs, the first more progressive than the second. Tonight, excerpts from Rimsky-Korsakov's opera The Invisible City of Kitezh and Giya Kancheli's …al Niente preface Tchaikovsky's red-blooded, big-boned Piano Concerto No. 1 (starrring Denis Kozhukhin); on Sat 15, Julia Fischer is featured in Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2, paired with Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2.
