Kings Place, Hall Two, 8pm – tickets here

To mark the centenary of the Russian Revolutions, we have collated a programme of musical responses to these historic turning points, featuring works by major Russian composers of the early 20th century alongside three especially commissioned pieces by contemporary composers – Emily Hall, Joel Rust and Timothy Salter.
Our debut performance at Kings Place will also include our own response to the revolutionary theme with free improvisation, a new piece inspired by the early electronics of the Russian avant-garde devised in collaboration with Jethro Cooke, a graphic score by Deborah Pritchard (based on a Kandinsky painting) and new arrangements of works by Mosolov, Prokofiev and Rachmaninoff.
We are extremely grateful to have received funding from the Oleg Prokofiev Trust, RVW Trust and Arts Council England in support of this project.
