Beethoven’s last concerto meets Shostakovich’s final symphony, and in the hands of Gianandrea Noseda and Barry Douglas, they both have something remarkable to say.

Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto begins with a huge chord, and a mighty flourish from the piano. Shostakovich’s Fifteenth Symphony … well, it’s a bit more complicated than that. But one thing’s for certain: this is a final symphony like no other, bristling with mystery, irony and (beneath it all) a sincerity and an emotional commitment that’s impossible to ignore.

Gianandrea Noseda understands all that. A devoted champion of Russian music, he’s ideally placed to uncover the mysteries (and share the humour) of this enigmatic modern masterpiece – and to uncover its kinship with Beethoven’s majestic concerto. 

Change of soloist

Beatrice Rana has tested positive for Covid-19 and is therefore unable to perform with us. We wish her a speedy recovery.

We are delighted that Barry Douglas is able to step in at extremely short notice. The programme remains unchanged.
