‘Moscow’ Coronation Cantata for Alexander III
Pyotr Tchaikovsky (1840-1893) wrote the great ‘Moscow’ Cantata in 1883 to mark the Coronation of Emperor Alexander III. Set to an epic poem by Apollon Maikov (1821-1897), the music is regarded as some of the most grandiose music that Tchaikovsky ever wrote. Andrew Wailes will conduct the RMP Choir and Orchestra, and outstanding soloists Sally-Anne Russell and Sam Roberts-Smith in this dramatic musical panorama of Russian history, from the foundation of Moscow to the enthronement of the first Tsar.
Tchaikovsky, Angel of Music is a large, romantic opera in three acts by Australian composer Sean Peter Ross, which shines a light on the life of the great Russian composer Pyotr Tchaikovsky through Tchaikovsky’s own words. It was the winner of the Director’s Choice Award for Opera, in the Boston International Contempo Festival composition competition in 2014. Hear the concert-length Act III of this powerful and uplifting opera performed under the direction of the composer, and featuring an outstanding cast including Sam Roberts-Smith as Pyotr Tchaikovsky, Sally-Anne Russell as Nadezhda von Meck, and Andrew Jones as Modeste Tchaikovsky.
