Shostakovich by Heart

This listing is in the past
Southbank Centre: Royal Festival HallBelvedere Road, London, Greater London, SE1 8XX, United Kingdom
Dates/times in London time zone

Aurora brings its thrilling memorised approach to Shostakovich’s Ninth, harnessing the power of an orchestra playing from memory to explore a 20th-century masterpiece from the inside out.

Principal Conductor Nicholas Collon teams up with BBC Radio 3’s Tom Service to offer audiences a uniquely vivid musical introduction with live excerpts.

They unpack the musical architecture of the symphony’s fleet-footed melodies and dance-filled rhythms, before Aurora’s musicians put it back together with a complete performance of the work by heart.
