A wonderful evening of enchanting music from Kazakhstan’s leading composer. Yerkesh Shakeyev is widely acclaimed for his classical, popular and film music and for the first time brings this delightful programme to the British public.
International soloists Chloë Hanslip and John Lenehan perform highlights from Shakeyev’s major recordings with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
Waves from Heaven is, in composer Yerkesh Shakeyev’s own words, music that descended to him from the sky as a revelation: “Warm waves of harmony came as whispers from angels, capable of healing inner wounds and re-awakening love for life.”
