BORODINPrince Igor: Polovtsian DancesListen
SHOSTAKOVICHCello Concerto no. 1Listen


The soul of Russia is romantic melody and passionate story-telling. David Atherton brings three great Russian works to our stage – the excitement of the Polovtsian Dances, Shostakovich’s brooding cello concerto, and the beguiling tales of the Arabian Nights in music – Scheherazade.


Our cello soloist Jing Zhao has withdrawn from this concert for health reason. The two performances will be replaced by Swedish cellist Jakob Koranyi. The advertised repertoire remains unchanged. 

We take this opportunity to thank our public for their understanding.
