Tchaikovsky’s work recalls the year that the Russians turned Napoleon’s army back, and Shostakovich commemorates the early Russian revolution that presaged the later Soviet one. Khatchaturian’s suite of music for a play is rightly familiar in concert halls today.
Tchaikovsky Overture, The Year 1812
Khatchaturian Masquerade (Suite)
Shostakovich Symphony No 11 (The Year 1905)
Michael Lloyd Conductor
Venue: Elgar Concert Hall, The Bramall
