Gianandrea Noseda, the LSO’s Principal Guest Conductor, has close personal connections to Russia, and when it comes to Shostakovich’s Thirteenth, nothing less will do. A full orchestra, a men’s choir and a Russian bass with a dark tone come together to speak uncompromising truth to power.

This concert is part of Half Six Fix, a different way to experience the LSO, with an introduction to the music from Gianandrea Noseda, and digital programme notes on your phone or device. Grab a drink, take your seat and enjoy the music.

The concert will last approximately one hour, with no interval.
