The Guildhall Symphony Orchestra & Chorus are led by renowned Russian conductor Vassily Sinaisky and chorus master David Vinden on 22 September for a programme of two celestial choral works inspired by Shakespeare: Nicolai’s ‘Mondchor’ Die lustigen Weiber von Windsor and Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music. The concert also features Elgar’s famous musical sketches, Enigma Variations, a colourful collection of musical caricatures inspired by the composer’s friends.
One of the great Russian conductors schooled in the tradition of Musin and Kondrashin, Vassily Sinaisky is known for his interpretations of Russian, German and English repertoire. Sinaisky also has a distinguished pedigree as an operatic conductor and from 2010-2013 was Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow.
