Petrenko Conducts Shostakovich

Classical sounds in a romantic setting

With Vasily Petrenko conducting, tenor Mark Padmore and Katy Woolley on the horn, this is a real treat for all classical music lovers. The two completed movements of Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony ushered in the Romantic style, which can be heard resonating in Britten’s hauntingly beautiful song cycle. Shostakovich had effectively been backed into a corner by Stalin’s cultural watchdogs when he produced his all-conquering Fifth Symphony as an "artist’s response to just criticism". Programme: - Schubert: Symphony No 8, Unfinished - Britten: Serenade for Tenor, Horn + Strings - Shostakovich: Symphony No 5 Over 7s only. If booking multiple tickets please make sure to book from one YPlan account if you want to be seated together.
