Opening with the evocative wind-swept shores of Peter Grimes’ fishing village in coastal Suffolk, this programme deftly switches from the UK to Russia and back again. Rachmaninov’s thrilling Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini will give star pianist Pavel Kolesnikov a chance to show off his virtuosity, before Shostakovich tells the story of Hamlet in his own unique way.

An orchestra comprised of British and Russian talent performs music of their homelands in this unique concert programme.
