  • Stanislaw Skrowaczewski is a former Princial Conductor of the Hallé and remains an annual visitor to the Orchestra. He met Shostakovich as a student, and has become a world authority on his music.

  • Shostakovich's First Symphony was written as part of his diploma studies in 1926. It was premiered both in Leningrad and Moscow and earned the composer immediate world fame at the age of just 20. Considered perhaps the greatest composer of the 20th century, Shostakovich built all the major features of his music into this spectacular work. Tragic intensity, grotesque wit and humour all find their place.
