A new, brilliant composition by Eskender Bekmambetov, "For Misha's Gang - Suite for small, medium, large and extra large fiddles" was premiered at the opening concert of the "Revolutionaries: The late works of Beethoven & Ginastera" festival at Trinity Wall Street in New York on March 3, 2016.

Other works on this program were by Corigliano and Ginastera, and the encore was a Russian folk song. All here: Video gallery
