Frantic applause in a packed hall has crowned the Latin American tour of the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra. The famous ensemble gave the closing concert in Cecilia Meireles in the centre of Rio de Janeiro.

The applause was to a large extent addressed to the orchestra’s music director and conductor Vladimir Fedoseyev. "This was one of our best concerts. Brazilian public has a very good understanding of music and feels the Russian soul. When the audience becomes silent, it means people are absorbing the music ", maestro said after the performance. "We haven’t been to Latin America for twelve years, it is quite long. I hope next time we’ll return sooner", he added. During the tour the orchestra gave seven concerts and performed, besides Rio de Janeiro, in Uruguay (Montevideo), Argentina (Buenos Aires, Rosario) and Brazilian city of Sao Paolo.
