£15 tickets to the Philharmonia Orchestra at Royal Festival Hall
Sorry you missed this offer...
- Two works conceived in Stalinist Russia are performed at Royal Festival Hall – one hidden until Stalin's death, the other an ode to the Motherland.
- The Philharmonia Orchestra present two sides of Soviet rule in their inspired 2013 season, part of Southbank Centre's 'The Rest is Noise' festival.
- Don't miss the chance to hear two musical milestones of the 20th Century.
The Philharmonia Orchestra presents an evening of Russian classical milestones as part of Southbank Centre's 'The Rest is Noise' festival. The two main works in the concert come from opposite ends of the political spectrum - Shostakovich’s dark and powerful Violin Concerto No. 1 was repressed by Soviet authorities until after his in 1953, whilst Prokofiev’s spectacular flag-waving 'Alexander Nevsky' cantata was lauded by the state for its depiction of national heroics.
Conducted by Jakub Hrůša, the programme offers a high-impact insight into how political agenda can affect artistic expression, and is a fitting addition to the ‘Art of Fear’ strand of the festival.
