Festival: BBC Proms

It would be impossible to mark this year’s centenary of the Russian Revolution without a performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 12 – subtitled ‘The Year 1917’. Its sweeping, filmic music paints a portrait of Lenin, both as a man and a political force. Acclaimed Shostakovich interpreter Vasily Petrenko conducts the Oslo Philharmonic in an all-Russian programme also featuring Stravinsky’s ever-popular suite from The Firebird and Rachmaninov’s mercurial Fourth Piano Concerto (continuing our cycle of the composer’s complete piano concertos). Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, whose Beethoven concerto cycle was a highlight of the 2015 Proms, returns as soloist. 

Tickets £14 - £60.
