Vasily Petrenko

Fancy a night at the pictures? Mussorgsky’s seen things you wouldn’t believe: talking skulls, dancing chickens, ancient castles and a witch who lives in a hut with hen’s legs. They all come singing and dancing to life in Pictures at an Exhibition: pure fairytale magic, drenched in spectacular orchestral colours. First, though, savour the lush sounds of Korngold’s sumptuous Violin Concerto, written in 1940s Hollywood, and played by the brilliant Elena Urioste, making her Liverpool debut. And let Vasily Petrenko take you to hell and back, in Tchaikovsky’s tempestuous Francesca da Rimini.
