Written at the age of eighteen, Shostakovich's First Symphony has been likened to the opening chapter of a novel, setting the tone for all that follows. Nervous tension and sarcastic wit, passion and intelligence, contemplation and action, nobility and banality - the composer's trademarks are all immediately evident in this musically-assured debut.

Programme:

Hamilton Harty: A Comedy Overture
Shostakovich: Symphony No.1

Conductor: Rafael Payare
