About This Event

We recreate the programme of the 1960 London concert where Britten was first introduced to future friends and musical inspirations, Rostropovich and Shostakovich.

A concert that was to have far-reaching consequences was also one that showed three composers and a soloist at their finest in a programme that crackles with energy and invention.
