Philharmonia Orchestra: Shostakovich & Rachmaninov

Wednesday 22 November 2017

Bedford Corn Exchange, St Pauls Square

7.30pm

Long Yu conductor

George Li piano

GLINKA Overture, Ruslan and Ludmilla

RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No. 2

SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 5

For Dmitri Shostakovich, his Fifth Symphony really was a matter of life and death. Written in Stalin’s USSR, this is music on the edge: a shout of defiance in a time of terror, and one of the most powerful and personal statements in all of 20th-century music. It’s a gripping contrast to the romance of Rachmaninov’s hugely popular piano concerto – played by the brilliant young American star George Li – and Glinka’s sparkling little firecracker of an overture.

Tickets from £14
