Tonight's concert comes from Manchester, which has been twinned with St Petersburg for over 50 years. Liadov, who composed the first piece, the tone poem Kikimora, was born in St Petersburg, and the final piece in the concert, Shostakovich's 10th Symphony, was premiered by the St Petersburg Philharmonic. Sandwiched between these two pieces is Tchaikovsky's great Romantic Violin Concerto, performed by the Spanish violinist Leticia Moreno.
