They say all the good things come in threes, and tonight we have a veritable Russian doll made up of music by three of that country’s finest composers:
Rimsky-Korsakov’s Overture to The Tsar’s Bride (the opera which tells a dark tale of love, jealousy and betrayal) might be the smallest of that bunch, but two true giants vie for the position of top doll: Stravinsky’s Petrushka – his vivacious depiction of the love triangle between three puppets magically brought to life, and, with a welcome return by renowned soloist Ashley Wass, Tchaikovsky’s 1st Piano Concerto which immediately sets out its dramatic and intensely romantic intentions from the very opening thunderous chords.
