San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

Sergey Rakitchenkov and Arkady Serper

From Russia With Brilliant Virtuosity would be an apt title for this concert, which showcases the considerable talents of two honored graduates of the Moscow Tchaikovsky Conservatory of Music. After going on to establish distinguished careers in Russia and triumphing at major concert venues from Europe to Asia, it is our good fortune that they chose to relocate in the Bay Area, where Mr. Serper is a respected solo recitalist and Mr. Rakitchenkov the Associate Principal violist with the S.F. Opera Orchestra
