Tim Hankewich and co. will perform three Russian masterpieces everyone knows (and loves!): the <em>Polovtsian Dances </em>by Borodin (the basis of the song "Stranger in Paradise"); the Piano Concerto no. 2 of Rachmaninoff, featuring Iowa's extraordinary Miko Kominami as soloist; and Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony, with its rich drama, colorful evocations of Russian folk music, and barn-burning finale.
