Shostakovich - Festive Overture, Op. 96
Grieg - Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 16
Shostakovich - Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93

This concert sees the return of two great artists who individually had a big impact on audiences when they were last here in 2015 – Spanish conductor Jaime Martín and Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski.

Grieg’s Piano Concerto has one of the most recognisable openings in the piano repertoire and the work is a passionate evocation of Grieg’s love of Norwegian folk music. This is a quintessential Romantic work that promises to be spellbinding under the command of Trpčeski.

Shostakovich wrote his Tenth Symphony, his first in over eight years, following the death of Stalin – an event which may have impacted on the creation of the piece.
