Chamber Orchestra Kremlin will appear at Mason’s Center for the Arts on Sunday, Nov. 6, at 4 p.m.

Formed after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, this grand Russian ensemble is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Over the decades it has produced a catalog of more than 30 live and studio recordings featuring works by such celebrated Russian masters as Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky and Schnittke, as well as other revered composers, including Vivaldi, Piazzolla, Schubert and Rossini.

Under the baton of founder and music director Misha Rachlevsky, the orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile, Op. 11 and Scherzo in C Minor, Op. 42, as well as Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony, Op. 110 and Bach’s Contrapunctus, No. 1, from “The Art of the Fugue.” After the intermission, Rachlevsky will poll the audience and let the majority select the music for the second half of the program.

Tickets are $23, $38 and $46. Charge by phone at 888-945-2468 or visit
