Voices of Revolution: Youth & Optimism

Part of Classical Season

The talented young musicians of the Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra perform early works by Russian composers.

Rachmaninov’s First Piano Concerto reflects all the youthful freshness of a student composer. Shostakovich’s First Symphony, likewise written while he was still a student, received instant worldwide recognition.

Kabalevsky focused on writing lighter music for young performers; his playful and mischievous The Comedians suite portrays a group of travelling entertainers.

Who better than the talented young musicians of the Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra to perform this programme, under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy?
