Khachaturian Orchestral Suites from Spartacus
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3, Op. 26
Shostakovich Symphony No. 5, in D minor, Op. 47

Any visit by Russia’s oldest and finest philharmonic orchestra is to be welcomed, particularly when chief conductor Yuri Temirkanov takes the helm. According to The Guardian the St. Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra is ‘one of the greatest and most exciting orchestras in the world’. Founded in 1882 it is regarded (by Le Figaro) as “not just the crowning glory of Russian culture, but also the best representative of the State … it has become an essential worldwide ambassador of the Russian symphonic school”.

Representing St Petersburg’s great musical history, the orchestra joins forces with the acclaimed Russian pianist Nikolai Lugansky , who makes a welcome return to the National Concert Hall stage to perform Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3, completing their all-Russian programme for this special evening.
