Steven Isserlis plays Shostakovich

When Steven Isserlis and Richard Tognetti get together, you know there are going to be fireworks. Friends for over 20 years, their concert will hold a special place in this season. Shostakovich’s monumental first cello concerto sees Isserlis at his sublime best, while Haydn’s ‘London’ symphony – arguably the pinnacle of his compositional achievement – lies at the very heart of the ACO’s repertoire.

Adding to this special program are two world premieres – one by Australian composer Elena Kats-Chernin, whose colourful and expressive style makes a welcome return to the ACO, and a modern retelling of the concerto grosso by Samuel Adams, one of the most original compositional voices in the world today.
