Leningrad: Siege and Symphony
March 3, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm£7 – £8
Only 20 of the 100 members of Leningrad orchestra had survived the German blockade of their city to play the first ever performance of Shostakovich’s Seventh Symphony. Brian Moynahan writes a moving account of that moment and the tragedy that preceded it. ‘It’s hard to read his gripping, skilfully woven account without emotion’– Stephen Walsh, Spectator.
