Saffron Hall will be hosting a collaborative classical concert on February 9
Cellist Alisa Weilerstein, pianist Inon Barnatan and violinist Sergey Khachatryan will appear with leading solo and chamber percussionist Colin Currie and his fellow percussionists, Sam Walton and Owen Gunnell.
These world-renowned artists will perform a programme entitled Transfigured Nights, which takes the audience on a journey into the depths of Romanticism via Beethoven and Schoenberg and climaxing with Shostakovich’s enigmatic Symphony No.15 in A, the Russian composer's final symphony.
Colin Currie, who will be performing on what will be a chamber version of the latter, said: "I love performing in Saffron Hall and relish the chance to bring this exciting and highly dramatic chamber project to the audience there.
"Shostakovich’s 15th Symphony was premiered by a large symphony orchestra, but in this extraordinary chamber version the intensity of communication and intimacy of the music will be brought into maximum focus.
"The scoring retains a large role for the percussion department, which is used expressively and often delicately in much of the work. Symphonic Chamber Music - what a treat!"
