UK premiere of
Prokofiev's Cantata at Goldsmiths

Friday 5 October,
7.30pm

Great Hall, Richard Hoggart Building, Goldsmiths, University of
London, New Cross, London SE14 6NW

Admission: L 8 ( L5
)

The Music department, The
Centre for Russian Music and The Serge Prokofiev Archive at
Goldsmiths, University of London present the UK premiere of
Prokofiev's Cantata: Songs of our days. The Cantata was written in
1937 at the very height of Stalin's terror. Later, during the so
called 'Khrushchev thaw' all references to Stalin were removed from
the text. The Cantata will be performed at Goldsmiths with its
original text.

The Cantata will be conducted
by Alexander Ivashkin, Professor of Music and Director of the Centre
for Russian Music at Goldsmiths. It will be performed by Goldsmiths
Sinfonia and Chorus with solo performances by Jennifer Hunt
(mezzo-soprano) and Hamish Gallie (baritone).

There will be a pre-concert
talk by Noelle Mann, Prokofiev expert, the founder of the Serge
Prokofiev Archive and the Editor of the 'Three Oranges' magazine
published by The Serge Prokofiev Foundation.
