In words of Music Director of the orchestra, Misha Rachlevsky, “Performing for Chamber Music Societies is a great challenge and a great joy. They have some of the best, the most discriminating audiences across the land, who are continuously exposed to the performances of the highest technical level and passionate commitment by every musician on the stage. And that is what we are all about".
 
Reviewer of San Francisco Classical Voice said: “Under founding director Misha Rachlevsky, the Russians covered themselves and the music at hand with uncanny musicality, precision and verve. The 16 string players offered the sort of superb playing one expects only from a top string quartet on a good night” Click here for full review – and we strive to prove it at every concert …
 
Throughout the years COK performed for many CMSs, nearly always with multiple return visits – San Antonio, Brooklyn, Portland, OR, Melbourne, FL, Mobile, Montgomery. We are always happy to visit our old friends and add new ones!

 

 
We are aware, that some CMS do not engage groups that are not fitting the standard chamber music definition “one instrument per part and no conductor”. Can’t really argue with that, but if the exceptions are to be made, we very much hope to be considered. We can offer two reasons for that:
 
– It is often commented, that the tightness of ensemble, spotless tuning, unity of strokes/articulation and, more than anything, committed involvement by each musician of Chamber Orchestra KREMLIN are akin to those exhibited by the best of chamber groups. We are anxious to prove that to your audience. Here you can watch/listen to many samples of chamber works performed in string orchesra versions.
 
– We are equally anxious to assemble special programs for CMSs, be it well familiar chamber works performed with enriched sonorities of string orchestra, less familiar or unknown chamber works or the full spectrum of original compositions for string orchestra.
