Pianist Luka Okros joins forces with rising-star cellist Anastasia Kobekina for an all-Russian evening of chamber music, from the effervescent to the impassioned.

The concert opens with Stravinsky’s Suite italienne – a light-hearted arrangement of movements from his neo-classical ballet Pulcinella.

Fellow composer Nikolai Myaskovsky dubbed Prokofiev’s Cello Sonata ‘a miraculous piece of music’ on its debut in 1950, no doubt thanks to its blithe and buoyant spirit.

The evening concludes with Rachmaninov’s Cello Sonata in G minor: an example of its kind that showcases the composer’s delicate understanding of the potential of the instrument.
