About This Event

Tonight, the brilliant Tasmin Little takes her final Bridgewater Hall bow before stepping down from the concert platform this summer. Vassily Sinaisky conducts Szymanowski’s gripping Second Violin Concerto before taking on another Eastern European masterpiece from between the wars. Nikolay Myaskovsky was a rebel in a time and place when rebellion was a dangerous game – post-revolutionary Russia, where a word out of turn could leave you silenced for good. His epic Sixth Symphony is deeply political and intensely personal, inspired by both the Revolution and the deaths of his father and aunt.
