Russian Masters I

DATE: 05/02/2017
TIME: 6:00 PM till 7:45 PM


Piano Concerto No. 1

Symphony No. 5

In the first concert of our Russian Masters Series, we focus on two of the most prominent Russian composers, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich.

Highly acclaimed Russian pianist Pavel Kolesnikov joins the orchestra to perform Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto under the direction of French conductor Jean Marc Burfin.

Written at the height of Stalin’s oppressive reign, Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony paints a vivid picture of Russia at that time and is a deeply personal composition for the composer.

Jean-Marc Burfin – Conductor

Pavel Kolesnikov – Piano

Carmine Lauri – Guest Leader

A free shuttle bus service is available from MCP Carparks from 16:45-17:45, and for a half hour after the concert.

N.B. Please note that this concert is on the 5th of February, not the 4th as listed in the season brochure.
