5555925Chetham's Symphony Orchestra: Shostakovich Symphony No. 12
DateFriday 20th October 2017
DescriptionA major symphonic programme, performed by Chetham's stunning young players in response to the centenary of the Russian Revolution. The concert opens with Tchaikovsky's celebratory 1812 Overture, marking the successful defence of Russia against Napoleon's forces. 16-year old clarinetist Oliver Burrow performs a work born out of the 1940s jazz era, commissioned by Benny Goodman - 'The King of Swing'. Dedicated to Lenin and completed in 1961, Shostakovich's 12th Symphony is a monumental, programmatic work portraying the events of 1917 - an epic year in Russian history, with the assassination of the Romanov dynasty heralding the country's headlong journey into Revolution.
