‘This above all: to thine own self be true’. An avid reader and theatregoer, Tchaikovsky looked to Shakespeare thrice for his symphonic poems – Romeo and Juliet, The Tempestand Hamlet – and the vindictive role of Hamlet lends itself well to musical representation. This Russian programme sees old friend Nikolai Demidenko take on the lyrical and virtuosic Third Piano Concerto by Prokofiev. Homegrown conductor Darrell Ang closes the concert with Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 12, a passionate portrait of the 1917 Bolshevik Revolution.
