Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto (1933) is full of zingy wit. He composed this enjoyable work to showcase his own gifts at the keyboard, but wrote his second (1957) for his son Maxim – the result is an immensely appealing piece, with its ‘maddeningly catchy’ melodies. Tchaikovsky’s Third Symphony – his only symphony in a major key – derives its nickname from the Polish dance rhythms that animate the final movement.

This performance is being given by participants of the LSO St Luke’s first Monday Club. These seven participants have been attending monthly sessions at LSO St Luke’s led by Mark Withers for a couple of years and have learned string instruments alongside LSO musicians for this special four day project.

The music created by the First Monday Club is inspired by Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto. The music you will hear this evening is made up of seven sections – each representing a different First Monday Club participant. Assisted by film maker Claudia Lee they have also made films to accompany their music.
