What makes Russian music so special? In this short afternoon concert, Ensemble 360 and our guest presenters provide a light-hearted introduction to the forthcoming Russia in the Round May Festival. They’ll guide you through short movements and extracts from some of their favourite pieces in the Russian classical repertoire including Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Borodin’s String Quartet No. 2, with a sprinkling of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff and more!
Come and meet the musicians and find out more about the Festival in Crucible Corner afterwards.
