Musical Wunderkind Strings

Musical Wunderkind – Strings


Award winning teen musicians open Moscow Ballet in over 25 cities nationwide


Youth “Musical Wunderkind” musicians accompany Moscow Ballet principal ballerinas in Saint Saen’s “Dying Swan” from Carnival of the Animals, now commonly known as the influence for Odette’s movements in Swan Lake, in cities on the national tour. The Wunderkind, each in their respective cities, rehearse with the principal ballerina and open the performance in a duo of string player and ballerina to the delight of audiences.

Moscow Ballet’s cross discipline program, “Musical Wunderkind,” is a salute to talented young Symphony Orchestra Concerto Competition winners across the country and is an unprecedented opportunity for them. The live performance experience develops young musicians’ interpretation skills in a way practice cannot. Moscow Ballet continues to develop its mission to provide art enrichment for the local communities in which it performs.
