Firm festival favourites as soloists and accompanists, Andrew and Gemma come together today to launch the morning concert series with a programme that melds three major themes of this year: Russian music, on the back of commemorating the centenary of the Revolution; the art of the transcription; and the music of Schubert. The strange world of ETA Hoffmann seen in The Nutcracker is explored further in Offenbach’s opera, see Tue 8th
