Eastbourne Residency: Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich

A musical afternoon of colourful drama

3:00 PM, ​ Congress Theatre, Eastbourne

Dvořák Scherzo capriccioso
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1
Mahler Blumine
Shostakovich Symphony No. 1

Ilyich Rivas conductor
Simon Trpčeski piano
London Philharmonic Orchestra

When a 19-year-old student named Dmitri Shostakovich handed in the score for his First Symphony in 1925, his tutors at the St Petersburg Conservatory were stunned. Shostakovich's dramatic, impulsive and strident work seemed to combine Tchaikovsky's emotional fervour, Prokofiev's playful joie de vivre and Scriabin's intense heat. Venezuelan conductor Ilyich Rivas comes to Eastbourne to conduct Shostakovich's eye-widening First Symphony after Mahler's radiant orchestral flower song Blumine, Tchaikovsky's sweeping and dazzling First Piano Concerto and the playful orchestral flourish that is Dvořák's Scherzo capriccioso.
