Programme Information


Russia in the Round

PROKOFIEV Quintet Op.39 for oboe, clarinet, violin, viola and double bass
MARTINU Fantasia for theremin, oboe, string quartet and piano
SHOSTAKOVICH String Quartet No.8 in C minor Op.110
EISLER Septet No.1 Variations on American Children’s Songs

These pieces all have a remarkable story. Prokofiev’s Quintet, written in France, was a complete ballet that never materialised and Martinu’s Fantasia was written in the USA during the composer’s wartime exile. Shostakovich’s deeply moving eight Quartet was written in Dresden, and Hanns Eisler took refuge in East Berlin having been expelled from the USA in the McCarthy purges…despite the protests of Chaplin, Thomas Mann, Einstein, Picasso, Matisse, Copland and Cocteau!                                                                                                                                                                       

This concert is an intriguing kaleidoscope of mid-20th century sounds.
