RUSH HOUR #5: SHOSTAKOVICH 10
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Shostakovich Symphony No.10

David Corkhill conductor
Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School

Following the death of Stalin, Shostakovich responded with his epic Tenth Symphony. As a vivid depiction of Stalinist Russia – and the second movement a blistering, spitting portrait of the dictator himself – it marked a creative release following years of cultural oppression. Overwhelming in its charged emotions, above all else it triumphantly portrays that in the presence of tyranny an individual with a strong enough spirit can survive.

Joining us to create an orchestra of 68 players is the remarkable Cardinal Vaughan Memorial School, whose young musicians are mentored by their Southbank Sinfonia counterparts.
