11/11/2017 READING BACH CHOIR MUSIC FOR THE 100th ANNIVERSARY OF THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION

The first concert with new Musical Director David Young, an exciting Russian flavour and another first. The Reading Bach Choir is delighted to be performing the complete set of Shostakovich’s Ten Poems on Texts by Revolutionary Poets. This is possibly the first time the complete set has been performed in Britain and music has been specially printed. Rarely performed, it was written in the early 1950s, before the death of Stalin. Shostakovich cherry-picked a series of early 20th century propaganda texts, setting them to music rich with folk tunes, populist verve and a dramatists’ eye for setting text. This concert is on Remembrance Day and marks 100 years since the end of the 1917 Russian Revolution. Starts 7.30pm.
St Luke’s Church, Erleigh Road, Reading RG1 5LU
