Khatia Buniatishvili

Bringing an exceptional emotional depth to her art, Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili has taken the classical music world by storm. Praised as 'one of today's most technically gifted young pianists' by Gramophone, she makes her debut with the Oxford Philharmonic performing Rachmaninov's intensely lyrical second piano concerto. In his gripping fifth symphony, Shostakovich responds to the chilling criticism he received from the Russian state newspaper Pravda during the height of Stalin's regime. In fear for his life, Shostakovich composed the response he knew was required, yet under the mask of Russian nationalism, lyricism and heroism, looms the horror and menace of the Soviet police state. 

Concert ends at 9.30pm.
