Stravinsky Suite No.1 for Small Orchestra
Shostakovich Incidental Music to Hamlet (Concert Suite from the incidental music)
Schreker Birthday of the Infanta
Vasily Petrenko conductor
The world of the theatre dominates in this concert, 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
Please note the capacity is very limited (c. 330 seats total) and seating will be done on a socially distanced (2 metre) basis. To book single tickets please call the Box Office on 0151 709 3789.
