The Mariinsky Stradivarius Ensemble really is what it says it is – the cream of the Mariinsky’s string players performing on a magnificent collection of historic instruments by Amati, Guarneri and, of course, Stradivari himself.
With Valery Gergiev conducting in the intimate surroundings of Town Hall, this will be a once-in-a-lifetime evening of string playing without compare.
Presented in association with Mariinsky Theatre Trust. http://www.thsh.co.uk
