Alan Bush concerts in Russia in 2013
Posted: 01 January 2013

Dr. Mikhail Mishchenko, Associate Professor, St Petersburg Conservatoire, who is the organist of the Maltese Chapel of the Vorontsov Palace in St. Petersburg, is planning several concerts of music by British Composers in 2013.

The first of these concerts, entitled Musica Britannica, will take place on 24 January 2013, at the Philharmonic Hall, Minsk, Belarus. In Part 1, the programme begins with Edward Elgar, Sonata for Organ, Op. 28. Then there follows two compositions by Alan Bush: Three English Song Preludes, Op. 40 arranged for organ with Mikhail Mishchenko as soloist and Sonatina for Viola and Piano, Op. 88, performed by Boris Barinov (viola) and Mikhail Mischenko (piano). Then, J.S. Bach, Fantasia and Fugue.

Part 2, with the same soloists, includes Ralph Vaughan Williams, Three Preludes on Welsh hymn-tunes, Edward Elgar, Two pieces for viola and organ, Chanson de matin (Op. 15), York Bowen, Fantasia for viola and organ, and finally, Vaughan Williams, Suite for viola and organ.

We will inform you of the later concerts planned by Mikhail Mishchenko in due course.

In October/November 2013, Alan Bush will feature in The St Petersburg British Music Festival. They propose to perform three works by Alan Bush: Fantasia on Soviet Themes, Op. 24, at St Petersberg State Academic Capella with the Capella Orchestra, and at a Chamber Concert, in The Sheremetev Palace: Three Concert Studies, Op. 31 for piano, violin and cello and The Prison Cycle, Op. 19. Written in collaboration with Alan Rawsthorne.

The Trust is delighted that Alan Bush will be performed at this Festival, alongside other famous British composers. We will give more precise details of date and time nearer the time of the concerts.
