Britten Weekend: Britten & Russia
Friday 18 - Sunday 20 October
Britten’s first encounter with Shostakovich and Rostropovich in September 1960 was the beginning of two enduring friendships. Britten Weekend recreates that 1960 concert and celebrates Britten, the cello, Russia and his Russian friends in the company of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and others.
Snape Maltings is one of the world’s leading centres of music and a place of energy and inspiration.
