The Sage, Gateshead | Classical Season 2017/18 | RNS at Home
Olli Mustonen conductor/piano
Royal Northern Sinfonia
Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture
Mozart Piano Concerto No.26 ‘Coronation’
Borodin (arr. Sargent) Nocturne
Shostakovich Symphony No.9
Pianist, conductor and composer Olli Mustonen has a very special relationship with Russian music, especially that of Shostakovich.
He will demonstrate this tonight in an almost all-Russian programme, from the raw emotion of Tchaikovsky’s star-crossed lovers, via Borodin, to Shostakovich’s brightest symphony, which contemporary critics compared to Mozart – Shostakovich-style, of course.
Appropriately, Mozart’s ‘Coronation’ concerto completes the programme.
Book online directly through the Sage. There is a bus going from Alnwick via Felton, Amble & Warkworth which costs £8 in addition to your concert ticket.
