Sunday Classics: St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra

featuring Peter Donohoe

7:30pm, Sunday 29 October 2017

Peter Donohoe Special offer

The St Petersburg Symphony has played a hugely important role in its hometown’s artistic life for decades. In 1988, the Orchestra started its now famous concert series in the Mirror Hall of the glorious Princes-Belozersky Palace in the very heart of St. Petersburg.

For their Usher Hall performance the Orchestra is sure to delight with this powerhouse, all-Russian programme that includes two of Tchaikovsky’s enduringly popular works. Firstly, the ravishing, Byron-inspired ‘Manfred’ Symphony, and arguably the composer’s first true masterpiece, ‘Romeo & Juliet’. Memorable melodies abound in both these sumptuous works, but when you combine that with the muscular playing of the St Petersburg Symphony you’re in for the most authentic Russian musical experience.

One of the foremost pianists of our time, Peter Donohoe, joins the Orchestra for Rachmaninov’s ‘jazzy’ fourth piano concerto bringing his musicianship, stylistic versatility and commanding technique to the Usher Hall’s Steinway.
