For the Grand Finale, we are transported to Russia for a programme of truly festive treats. See star cellist and LICMF favourite, Yoanna Prodanova, show off her skills in Stravinsky’s vibrant and virtuosic suite from the Pulcinella love-quest ballet. Celebrating the life of composer Dmitri Smirnov, we hear his lyrical and elegiac Tiriel, inspired by a poem by William Blake and we conclude the festival with Rachmaninov’s gorgeous Cello and Piano Sonata, packed with love tunes and concerto-like piano playing by Artistic Director, Alissa Firsova. We look forward to bringing you all together again with this most stunning music!
