Concert information

** Change of Artist: Sergei Leiferkus replaces the previous advertised Elena Zhidkova.

Glazunov’s brilliant orchestration of some of Chopin’s piano works makes for a fine start to this programme which also includes one of the most popular Romantic symphonies, Tchaikovsky’s Fifth. Martyn Brabbins links these two labours of love with Mussorgsky’s 'Songs and Dances of Death', but don’t be misled by the title: you’ll never hear anything more blackly comic – or a more compelling showcase for a great voice.

Pre-concert Talk: 6.45pm-c.7.15pm in the main auditorium (free to ticket-holders) - conductor Martyn Brabbins in conversation about some of the works featured in tonight's programme.

The concert will be recorded for future broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
