About this event

Immersive concert-experience of String quartets by Dmitry Shostakovich.

The casual intimacy of chamber music provided a creative outlet for Soviet composers compared to the symphonies they produced at the behest of the Communist Party. String quartets in particular were easy to arrange for, and lent themselves to private performances for trusted friends behind closed doors. The resulting music was therefore free to provide a much-needed experience of vulnerability and decadence.

We will be presenting two intimate pieces by prolific Soviet composer Dmitry Shostakovich, in a transporting context with modern lighting design.
