Programme Information


Russia in the Round

KHACHATURIAN ‘Sabre Dance’ from Gayane for violin and piano (arr Heifetz)
CHRIS NOBLE Bear, Ascend!  Platform 4 commission for May 2017 Festival
RACHMANINOV Trio Élégiaque No.1 in G minor 
GUBAIDULINA Quasi Hoquetus for viola, bassoon and piano
GLINKA Trio Pathétique in D for clarinet, bassoon and piano

A rollercoaster musical ride in under an hour! Ben Nabarro launches the concert with an explosive transcription of the famous Sabre Dance, while Rachmaninov’s and Glinka’s short trios are both supremely expressive works.

In addition to Chris Noble’s new work, we are delighted to present Quasi Hoquetus by Sofia Gubaidulina. Born in Tatarstan but now living in Hamburg, Gubaidulina’s early work came under the scrutiny of the Soviet authorities who deemed it ‘irresponsible’ – the titletranslates as ‘like a hiccup’!

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.
