Chester Philharmonic presents ‘Shostakovich’s Answer to Stalin’

4th March 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 9:45 pm

The second Cathedral Concert in the “High Fives” Season sees a performance of the dark brooding Fifth Symphony of Shostakovich.

Composed in 1937 and later described as, “An expression of suffering to which the population had been subjected by Stalin,” it is non-the-less triumphant and tuneful. We will also hear Weber’s Clarinet Concerto performed by the BBC Philharmonic’s Principal Clarinet John Bradbury. The conductor is David Chatwin, also from the BBC Phil, and the concert commences with Rossini’s William Tell Overture, the tune you can’t hear without thinking of ‘The Lone Ranger.’
