Tchaikovsky: Andrei Bondarenko & Gary Matthewman

27 October 2017, 7:30pm 01 March 2024 - 2:25pm

As part of our day exploring Russian song and the Russian Revolution, which came to an end 100 years ago almost to the day, we welcome the Ukrainian baritone Andrei Bondarenko, winner of the Song Prize at the 2011 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World. He performs songs by Rubinstein, Sviridov and Rachmaninov, before a second half comprising only Tchaikovsky songs: almost the Russian equivalent of a ‘Schubertiade’.

This event is part of a day exploring Russian song in the centenary of the Russian Revolution. The schedule for the day is as follows:
