Under Stalin’s regime, sometimes only music could speak the truth. The Soviet authorities called Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony an ‘optimistic tragedy’, but this vast, brooding masterpiece is actually a shatteringly powerful portrait of a human spirit battling impossible odds. With our dynamic Principal Guest Conductor Elim Chan, it should be a gripping journey, and a powerful contrast to Sieidi, an explosive percussion workout from the forests of Finland, starring the world-renowned soloist Martin Grubinger. He’s been called a force of nature!
