South Bank Centre

Mariana Haseldine and RACACU Foundation present  a world premiere project and CD launch of Rakhmaninov and Shostakovich music in the new cello and piano edition, authorized by Irina Shostakovich, a widow of the composer.

The MASTERPIECES: RUSSIA honors Russia’s dramatic history of the 20 c and is a thrilling Russian music tribute in commemoration of the 1st World War Centinary.

Project of the brilliant cellist Boris Andrianov gathers together a range of fascinating repertoire:

The new cello edition of the miniatures by the legendary Russian composers and most well known chamber music works Rakhmaninov’s cello sonata and Shostakovich 2 piano trio.  Partnering international stars, superb pianist Rem Urasin and violinist Roman Mints each at the peak of their interpretive powers, Boris ANdrianov’s program expected to be packed with electrifying performances of chamber music and song classics.

The program includes compositions from the early period of both compsoers, such as In the Silence of the Night, when young Rakhmaninov fell deeply in love in the summer 1890, or Shostkaovich’s Preludes opus 34 from the happiest and care free period of 1930-32. The project concludes with one of the great compositions ever compseord for cello - a towering cello sonata and a dramatic 2 piano trio by Shostakovich dedicated to the memory of his closest friend Ivan Sollertinsky, his most poignant loss in the war winter of 1944.
