Gerry Cornelius *

Emotion, extravagance, excess; all the things you’d expect from an evening of Russian classics, you’ll find in this concert. Allow yourself to be swept away by this opulent programme featuring legendary composers from one of the world’s most artistic nations. Searing melodies from Romeo & Juliet and Swan Lake combine in a no-holds-barred celebration of some of the most Romantic music ever written.

* We are extremely grateful to Gerry Cornelius for agreeing to conduct this evening’s concert in place of Jamie Phillips.
