RSNO – Shostakovich Twelve

September 27, 2017 in by mwhiteside

Event Details

As thoughts turn to Remembrance Day, the RSNO reflects on Petrograd, 1917: angry crowds fill the streets, the guns of a warship thunder in the distance, and the air buzzes with revolutionary songs. Shostakovich’s Twelfth Symphony is all about history on a blockbuster scale – the definitive musical re-telling of the Bolshevik Revolution. But before that red dawn, a glance back at a more romantic age, as guest conductor Cristian Macelaru welcomes the newly-crowned winner of the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Rachmaninov’s glittering First Concerto.
