Conductor Martyn Brabbins
Trumpet Lucienne Renaudin Vary*
Debussy Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
Haydn Trumpet Concerto
Shostakovich Symphony No. 5
Debussy’s languid, dreamlike Prélude à l'Après-midi d'un faune opens this final concert of the series.
Lucienne is an exciting young talent in the world of classical music, who is due to release her debut album with Warner Classics in autumn 2017. Next season will see her tour extensivley, including dates with Munich Symonhny Orcehstra, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, Les Violons du Roy and Lucerne Symphony Orchestra.
Filled with wonderful melodies and stirring rhythms, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 pulses with irresistible energy. Written under Joseph Stalin’s stifling Soviet regime, the composer subtly crafted a blend of satire and submission that intrigues audiences to this day.
*Please note: Lucienne Renaudin Vary replaces Alison Balsom as the soloist for this concert, tickets already purchased are still valid. For further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
“I’m extremely honoured and so excited to be performing with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Martyn Brabbins. The Cambridge Corn Exchange has seen some of the best musicians on its stage and I feel humbled to be part of this amazing concert with such incredible musicians!”
Did you know?
Failure to please the authorities with his Symphony No. 5 would most likely have led to Shostakovich’s ‘disappearance’. No pressure then!
