Royal Philharmonic Orchestra: Experience A night Of Russian Masterworks

Elite entertainment in special surroundings

We welcome back conductor Garry Walker, who leads an irresistible programme of Russian works. Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No.2 is a remarkable composition that fuses contemporary invention with the romantic, lyrical writing of his predecessors. This astonishing twentieth-century work features Martin Roscoe, a pianist renowned for his versatility at the keyboard. Equally as vivid are the contrasts of style and traits within Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony – his final symphonic essay juxtaposes playful central movements with the bleakness that haunted Tchaikovsky’s life so often. Programme: - Tchaikovsky: Romeo + Juliet Fantasy Overture - Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No 2 - Tchaikovsky: Symphony No 6, Pathétique Over 5s only.
