Information about the programme

The BRSO’s chamber music programs center on works whose unusual instrumentation has prevented them from being frequently performed in concerts. One such work is pianist Viktor Derevianko’s arrangement of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Fifteenth Symphony for piano trio and three percussionists, which creates an exciting timbral and rhythmic alternative to Shostakovich’s original. The Fifteenth Symphony is Shostakovich’s last contribution to the symphonic genre, and is considered to be an eloquent summation of his artistic life. Shostakovich references music of the past with quotations from Rossini and Wagner. The concert will commence with Anton Arensky’s rarely performed Piano Trio, composed in 1894: it is an unjustly neglected masterpiece that is in no way inferior to the compositions of German Romanticism. And Serbian percussionist and composer Nebojša Jovan Živković composed the percussion trio “Trio per uno” to showcase his favorite instruments. This is a program full of discoveries for inquisitive music lovers.
