A mixed instrument international but London-based  chamber music ensemble, I Musicanti, will perform Shostakovich and Glinka. 

Two classics of Russian chamber music for piano and strings, with their triumphal introductory piano chords, contrast with a mysterious exploration of the lowest (and the not so low) string sounds. The programme also features the first of four works written for this series by award-winning film composer Alexandra Harwood.
