Russia’s frozen landscapes ignited warmth in the heart of Tchaikovsky, inspiring hugely emotional music which paved the way for the Romantic revolution in his homeland. 

 

Rachmaninoff’s popular solo piano works are masterpieces which place melody and virtuosity side by side, whilst Scriabin’s intensely passionate offerings are often seen as hidden gems. 

 

Prokofiev’s imaginative score for ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is bold, brilliant, heartfelt and emotionally shocking. 

 

 

Resonance prides itself on presenting outstanding, one-hour, early-evening concerts which are informal and sociable.  Join pianist Chris Cartner for this collection of masterpieces which are legacies to the great Russian Romantic era.
