Premiered in 1953 after the death of Stalin, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony is a bumpy ride of emotion and inner turmoil. Is it a depiction of Stalin himself? While debatable, it’s worth remembering the dictator had Shostakovich denounced for his work several times. There is little doubt that experience left its shadow on this explosive work.

Dawn. Sunday morning. Moonlight. Storm.

A changing seascape of sound, Britten’s Four Sea Interludes masterfully brings to life the Suffolk coast in all its vivid moods and mystery. Taken from Peter Grimes, Britten’s 1945 opera about an outcast fisherman suspected of murder, this is music which powerfully hints at the psychological drama beneath.
