Vasily Petrenko conductor

The world of the theatre dominates in this concert, as Vasily Petrenko brings music from one of his signature composers (Shostakovich) and introduces us to a young contemporary of his beloved Mahler, Franz Schreker. Shostakovich’s thrilling score runs the gamut of styles and emotions as he mirrors the twists and turns of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy. Schreker’s sumptuous and brilliant score to a theatrical pantomime based on a novella by Oscar Wilde marked him out as a potential successor to Mahler and Strauss. Subtitled an overture to a ballet, Hindemith’s piece was inspired by Rafael’s fresco in the Villa Farnesina in Rome.  

Prices are as follows:

  • Individual - £10
  • Supporter - £15
  • Superstar (what you would normally pay to attend a live concert) - £32
