Russia in the Round

HAYDN String Quartet Op.33 No.1
JENNY JACKSON Focus Pull Platform 4 commission for May Festival 2017
TANEYEV String Trio in E flat Op.31

Russian chamber music owes much to the salons of Vienna! Members of the aristocracy on their Grand Tours discovered a style of music that was simply unknown in St Petersburg and Moscow, inspiring men such as Count Rasumovsky and Tsar Alexander to become patrons of Beethoven. Haydn’s Opus 33 Quartets were dedicated to Grand Duke Paul and were premiered on Christmas Day, 1781.

“He is the greatest master of counterpoint in Russia. I am not sure there is his equal in the West.” Tchaikovsky writing about Sergei Taneyev. 

Platform 4 commissions for our Russia in the Round Festival 2017
We have commissioned the members of Sheffield's professional composers collective, Platform 4, to each write a new work for our 2017 Festival, inspired by famous Russian repertoire. You can hear the new pieces performed alongside the works that inspired them in each programme. Find out more here.
