Written in 1953 following the death of Stalin and considered as a commentary on the Soviet dictator’s rule, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony has been described as ‘forty-eight minutes of tragedy, despair and terror, followed by two minutes of triumph’. The Guildhall Symphony Orchestra welcomes esteemed conductor Michail Jurowski to the podium to conduct this powerful work.
Before this, Guildhall pianist Julian Clef joins the orchestra for Beethoven’s playful Piano Concerto No. 1.
