Khachaturian Masquerade Suite
Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.1
Shostakovich Symphony No.5

The Russian State Symphony Orchestra is from Moscow so, with rising star Valentin Uryupin conducting, expect a roof-raising concert that begins with Khachaturian’s droll, deliciously tuneful Masquerade Suite, and features a giant amongst British pianists, the great Barry Douglas, as soloist in Rachmaninov’s bejewelled Fabergé egg of a First Piano Concerto.

Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony is music that demands to be heard: angry, heartfelt, and utterly compelling. There’s simply nothing in all of 20th century music more gripping than to hear it played by a top Russian orchestra.
