Paavo Järvi conductor
Kirill Gerstein piano 

GLINKA Overture, Ruslan and Ludmilla
RACHMANINOV Piano Concerto No. 3
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 5

Written at the height of a repressive Soviet regime, Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony was famously, and moreover, ambiguously dubbed by one journalist as “a Soviet artist’s creative answer to just criticism”. Rachmaninov’s fiendishly difficult Third Piano Concerto is tonight played by Russian-American pianist Kirill Gerstein who the Observer describes as “one of the hottest guns in the game … superb”.

Pre Concert Talk (Free): 6.15pm - 6.50pm
Kirill Gerstein in conversation with John Florance in the DMH auditorium.
