To celebrate the 450th Anniversary of the birth of Shakespeare, the Mozart Symphony Orchestra has put together a programme that flirts with the great bard’s long association with Russian (including the former USSR) artists. Both the Prokofiev and the Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliets have long been audience favourites.

This concert introduces a new work by Tolibkhon Shakhidi: a setting of Shakespeare’s sonnet Devouring Time. Another Shakhidi piece, Rhapsody, uses themes by Aram Khachaturian which links in with the same composer’s Waltz from Masquerade.
