Part of the Southbank Centre's Art of Fear season, which explores the music of oppression and war, the London appearance by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is a rare treat.
The ensemble – conducted by Andris Nelson – will perform Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, written during the siege of Leningrad by the Nazis in World War Two and smuggled through enemy lines to become a worldwide hit. The piece is filled with a sense of patriotism and resistance, symbolising the overcoming of conflict.
