More details:Southbank Centre’s year-long festival ‘The Rest is Noise’ puts the music of the last century in the context of its profound political upheavals. On October 4, the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra will perform two works written in secret under Stalin; Prokofiev’s ‘Sinfonia concertante in E minor for cello and orchestra’ and Shostakovich’s ‘Symphony No. 10 in E minor’.
Both composers were denounced by the government for displaying ‘formalist perversions… alien to the Soviet people’. These works were released after Stalin’s death and are considered amongst the greatest by either composer. The show begins at 7:30pm and is preceded by a free talk by Dr Marina Frolova-Walker about the background to the music, taking place at 6:15pm.
