Love and War

Concert or Performance

28 Sep 2018 to 29 Sep 2018

You know you’re alive when you hear Chopin – the way he makes the piano sing, the tenderness of a nocturne, the bravura of a mazurka – and it’s all there in the F minor Concerto, first performed by the composer when he was barely twenty. Outstanding young pianist Benjamin Grosvenor will breathe life of his own into this music.

Shostakovich wrote his Eighth Symphony in 1943, following Russia’s victory at Stalingrad. A triumphal work was anticipated, but Shostakovich could not ignore the terrible human cost of the war, nor the ongoing suffering under Stalin. A menacing shadow hangs over this symphonic journey – “a journey that yearns more for peace than for victory,” according to Mark Wigglesworth. And yet, through it all, and finally emerging in hushed C major, is life – beautiful, resilient life.
