What a fantastic evening we had last night at our Russian Masterworks concert!
A huge thanks to our fantastic conductor Christopher Stark who worked with us to create a truly special evening. Serene scenes of dawn over the Moscow River from Mussorgsky were followed by passion, drama and “sparkly panic” (to use Chris’s very desripive phrase!) in Prokofiev’s Cinderella. The evening finished with the searing Sixth Symphony by Shostakovich – we can’t work out why this isn’t played more often as it is a truly amazing piece.
A great evening – we can’t wait till our next one, the Spotlight on the Set Works concert in March!
