Twilight of the Tsars: Chamber Music Festival

Date: 16/02/2017 to 19/02/2017
Venue: Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama / Coleg Cerdd a Drama Brenhinol Cymru

As the sun set on the Romanov dynasty and a 300-year old empire hurtled towards war and revolution, Russian music caught fire. A century after that world ended forever, Royal Welsh College artists in residence The Gould Piano Trio are joined by the Endellion Quartet to explore the extraordinary musical flowering of pre-revolutionary Russia. There will be chamber music by Borodin, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov, bejewelled rarities by Arensky, Glinka and Glazunov, and some magical rediscoveries. This is the music of St Petersburg drawing rooms and long summers on country estates; of folk songs, fairy tales and glittering Imperial splendour.

Join us for a journey into a lost world.
