Shostakovich Symphony No.1 in F Minor

Concert duration: Approx. 1 hr 40 min

An extraordinary polymath, Hough’s interpretations of Brahms have drawn praise for their gentle reflectiveness. His performance of the composer’s Piano Concerto No. 2 is, quite simply, an experience not to be missed.

Leading the orchestra is the much-in-demand Spanish maestro, Gustavo Gimeno. Since his sensational debut with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in 2014, ensembles across the globe have been clamouring to work with this major new talent. As a former percussionist, Gimeno helps us mark the 20th anniversary of Gareth Farr’s From the Depths Sound the Great Sea Gongs. Composed by a percussionist and now conducted by a percussionist, this glittering score will come to life.

Bringing this spectacular concert to a close is Symphony No. 1 by Shostakovich. The composer’s unabashed romanticism and sharp wit will cap an incredible evening of dazzling timbres and emotional power.
