Martin Roscoe performs Shostakovich

SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Concerto No.2 

TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No.6, ‘Pathétique’

Garry Walker Conductor
Martin Roscoe Piano

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

We welcome back conductor Garry Walker, who leads an irresistible programme of Russian works. Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto No.2 is a remarkable composition that fuses contemporary invention with the romantic, lyrical writing of his predecessors. This astonishing twentieth-century work features Martin Roscoe, a pianist renowned for his versatility at the keyboard. Equally as vivid are the contrasts of style and traits within Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony; his final symphonic essay juxtaposes playful central movements with the bleakness that haunted Tchaikovsky’s life so often.
