Benjamin Northey, chief conductor.
Nikolay Khozyainov, piano.

Hermann Psycho, A Suite for Strings.
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3.
Shostakovich Symphony No.5.

During Stalin's purges of 1937, Dimitri Shostakovich was denounced by the Communist Party who decried his most recent works as endangering the Soviet people. Under tremendous pressure, Shostakovich responded with his Fifth Symphony.

The symphony concludes with a triumphant, rousing march. Officials regarded it as a celebration of Stalin's regime, while the audience heard it as a coded protest of the ruling system and responded with a 30 minute standing ovation.

The New York Times wrote: "The Music World is taking note of Nikolay Khozyainov's stunning virtuosity and prodigious technique". Twenty-five year-old Russian pianist Khozyainov was the youngest finalist in the International Chopin Piano Competition and has delighted audiences around the world with sold out recitals and concerto engagements. He joins the CSO to perform Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.3

Bernard Hermann created one of the most recognisable film scores of all time when he wrote the music fro Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 movie, Psycho. Credited by Hitchcock as one of the the factors that led to the success of the film, Herrmann's music has also enjoyed enduring success in the concert hall.
