From Philadelphia to Palm Beach to Carnegie Hall, Stefan's tour with the Russian National Orchestra last night was an unqualified success, with each performance garnering new rave reviews. See below for some of the highlights!

 

The stirring young Stefan Jackiw...made the work his own: not only the beautiful melodies but also the skittish passages in which the tunes seem to be morphing and turning themselves inside out.
