Vasily Petrenko conductor

The world of the theatre dominates tonight with Vasily Petrenko bringing music from one of his signature composers (Shostakovich) and introducing us to a younger contemporary of his beloved Mahler (Schreker). Shostakovich’s thrilling score runs the gamut of styles and emotions as he mirrors the twists and turns of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy.

Franz Schreker’s sumptuous and brilliant score to a theatrical pantomime based on a novella by Oscar Wilde, marked him out as a potential successor to Mahler and Strauss. A cheeky opener by Stravinsky sets the scene for the dramas.
