Stockport Symphony Orchestra concert
We are delighted to welcome back Ewa Strusinska to conduct the Stockport Symphony Orchestra (SSO) once again for an all Russian concert this evening. Ewa has been a conducting regularly with us for some years now and somehow manages to fit us in around her many professional commitments in Poland, Germany and elsewhere. Sadly, this is the fifth and final installment of Tom Hicks fantastic cycle of the Rachmaninov works for piano and orchestra with the SSO. It has been a fabulous journey we know is going to end on a high. And though Rachmaninov may have called this one a Rhapsody, it’s his Fifth Piano Concerto in all but name.
The evening includes:
- Stravinsky Pulcinella Suite
- Rachmaninov Rhapsody on a Theme of Paginini
- Shostakovich Symphony No. 9
