The latest event planned in the Cambridge Classical Concert Series will see the renowned St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra take to the stage at the Corn Exchange.
On Thursday, February 12, its 2014-2015 season will continue with recitals from a host of international talent.
Vladimir Altschuler will conduct the concert, which opens with Shostakovich’s Incidental Music from Hamlet. Violin virtuoso Alexander Sitkovetsky, a protégé of Yehudi Menuhin, will then perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. There will also be a rendition of Sibelius’ stirring Karelia Suite before the evening ends with Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece Romeo and Juliet.
A free pre-concert talk will be held at 6pm at the Cambridge City Hotel for ticket holders.
