Sheku Kanneh-Mason plays Shostakovich

Sunday 20 February 2022

Congress Theatre

Mussorgsky Khovanschina: Introduction ‘Dawn of the Moscow River’
Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 2
Borodin Symphony No. 2

Jonathan Bloxham conductor
Sheku Kanneh-Mason cello

Sheku Kanneh-Mason been called ‘the most promising talent of his generation’; and his debut recording of Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto became a global bestseller while he was still in his teens. But there’s still nothing quite like hearing him play live – and when he performs Shostakovich’s powerful Second Cello Concerto, we think you’ll agree that this is a young artist with something important to say. 

Jonathan Bloxham conducts the gripping centrepiece of an all-Russian programme that begins with Mussorgsky’s beautiful panorama of old Moscow, and ends with the swashbuckling thrills (and simply glorious melodies) of Borodin’s heroic Second Symphony. Music to set the pulse racing.
