Canterbury Orchestra is delighted to present three remarkable pieces of Russian music, opening with the powerful theme from Prokofiev’s ballet music, followed by the uncharacteristically joyful piano concerto written by Shostakovitch for his son’s 18th birthday, performed by the talented Christopher Weston. The concert concludes with Tchikovsky’s Symphony no.4, reflecting the composer’s emergence from a period of emotional and creative tensions.
