The Russian National Orchestra was founded in 1990 by pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev and is today recognized as one of the world’s top orchestras. The orchestra enjoys the distinction of being the first Russian orchestra to perform at the Apostolic Palace, Vatican and in Israel, and has been 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).

One of Russia's most respected and influential artists, Mikhail Pletnev's genius as pianist, conductor and composer enchants and amazes audiences around the globe. He was Gold Medal and First Prize winner of the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition when he was only 21, a prize that earned him early recognition worldwide. His friendship with Mikhail Gorbachev gave Pletnev the opportunity to found the Russian National Orchestra (RNO) in 1990. Under his leadership, the RNO has achieved towering stature among the world's orchestras.
