From a caress to a thump: the spectrum of Russian music in female hands

You need the power of nimble fingers to bring Sergei Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto no. 1 to a successful conclusion. Anna Vinnitskaya has that power. Chief conductor Elim Chan provides the necessary counterbalance with the enchanting sound poetry of grande dame Gubaidulina. Shostakovich naturally can’t be left out of this Russian programme. His Symphony no. 10 was completed shortly after Stalin's death. Horrifying music, written behind an iron curtain of fear and oppression.
