More About the Event

‘Delicacy and passion in every phrase’ were how one critic from Fanfare described the playing of the young Ukrainian pianist Anna Federova. She’ll bring all her powers into play when she joins Kirill Karabits and the BBC Symphony Orchestra in the mightiest of all Romantic piano concertos – an imposing upbeat to Boris Lyatoshinsky’s tempestuous Third Symphony of 1951.

It’s still something of a rarity in the UK, but Kirill Karabits has been an outspoken champion of neglected Soviet-era composers, and he’s convinced that the music of this major Ukrainian symphonist is powerful enough to speak on its own terms.
