Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. Prelude (Dawn over the Moscow River), from Khovanshchina - Modest Mussorgsky, completed and orchestrated by Nikolay Rimsky-Korsakov
  2. Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No 1 in A minor Op 77 - Dmitry Shostakovich
  3. Symphony No 5 in E minor Op 64 - Pyotr Tchaikovsky

The peaceful and evocative prelude to Mussorgsky’s opera Khovanshchina belies the powerful drama in the opera that follows. Shostakovich’s is one of the finest twentieth century violin concertos. Its four movements include a hushed and poignant nocturne, an imaginative passacaglia – variations over a repeated bass line – and an unstoppable finale. Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony was composed on his return to Russia in 1888 after a successful European concert tour. The waltz feel of much of the first movement foreshadows the waltz which takes the place of the usual scherzo. The slow movement is pure melody, while the finale is a burst of power and orchestral colour.
