The Russian National Orchestra may be the youngest of the world’s great orchestras.

Founded in 1990 with a proud post-Soviet insistence on existing without government support, the orchestra has established a reputation for gleaming virtuosity in exciting, sensitively wrought performances.

Named one of the world’s 20 best orchestras by Gramophone magazine, the ensemble performs 8 p.m. Monday at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach.

Led by conductor Kirill Karabits, the ensemble will present an all-Russian program: Borodin’s In the Steppes of Central Asia, Stravinsky’s The Firebird and Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 with soloist Stefan Jackiw.; 800-572-8471
