NTU Music welcomes back Grammy nominated Joseph Moog for A Russian Spectacular at the Albert Hall on Saturday, 10 February.

The Nottingham Trent University Choir and orchestra in residence, English Pro Musica, will perform a collection of the finest Russian classics from a trio of the country’s most celebrated composers.

The programme will feature Pyotr Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, Mikhail Glinka’s Russlan and Ludmilla Overture and Alexander Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances.

The German pianist, twice a winner at the International Classical Music Awards, last performed in Nottingham in 2015.

The event is part of Nottingham Trent’s International Music Series, which is taking place across 2018 to celebrate the University’s 175th Anniversary.

In April, the NTU Choir will be joined by the world-renowned London Philharmonic Orchestra in the Royal Concert Hall to perform Verdi’s Requiem.

Matthew Hopkins, Director of Music at NTU, said: “This promises to be another fantastic evening from NTU Music, featuring our 160-strong choir, a wonderful orchestra and a world famous pianist performing a collection of the most spectacular Russian classics in Nottingham’s impressive Albert Hall.”
