« National Phil. of Russia, Cirque Éloize will perform tonight | Main | Prazák Quartet encore »

I assume the arrangement of "Flight of the Bumblebee" which Olga Kern played on Friday is the one by Rachmaninoff? Does anyone know for certain?


What were the encore pieces?

Olga Kern played Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C#, Opus 3, no. 2 and Rimsky-Korsakov's Flight of the Bumblebee before intermission.

I also included a little mini-report from backstage:

I was in the audience that evening! The most memorable moment of the concert was when Spivakov took the orchestra from the third movement of Tchaikovsky's Pathétique symphony to the finale without pause.
