The Russian National Orchestra has been in demand throughout the music world ever since its 1990 Moscow premiere. Of the orchestra's 1996 debut at the BBC Proms in London, the Evening Standard wrote, "They played with such captivating beauty that the audience gave an involuntary sigh of pleasure." In 2004 they were described as "a living symbol of the best in Russian art" (Miami Herald) and "as close to perfect as one could hope for" (Trinity Mirror).
The first Russian orchestra to perform at the Vatican and in Israel, the RNO maintains an active international tour schedule, appearing in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The orchestra is a frequent guest at major festivals, and since 1999 has performed an annual concert series in the US. Popular with radio audiences worldwide, RNO concerts are regularly aired by National Public Radio in the United States and the European Broadcasting Union.
