image for Music - Classical item typeCardiff Phil Orchestra - From Russia with Love at St David's Hall

Music - Classical, Fri 20 Oct 2017, £6.50-£23.50




The centre-piece of this concert is the most beloved of all concertos, Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2, a work that is equally associated with Russian romance as it is with steam trains and the classic British film Brief Encounter.

Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra is thrilled to welcome the 2014 BBC Young Musician of the Year, Martin James Bartlett as soloist.

Stravinsky’s ballet Petrushka is set at a Russian shrovetide fair, and it’s his most colourful work. All is well until three puppets are brought to life…

The concert opens with more ballet music, the sumptuous Adagio from Khachaturian’s Spartacus. If Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 conjures images of steam trains then the Adagio from Spartacus owes its immense popularity to the great sailing ships of TV’s The Onedin Line.

This compelling performance forms part of the city-wide R17 Festival, which marks the centenary of the Russian Revolution and captures the social and cultural explosion of the era.
