The talented young musicians of the Royal College of Music Symphony Orchestra perform early works by Russian composers.
Rachmaninov's First Piano Concerto reflects all the youthful freshness of a student composer. Shostakovich's First Symphony, likewise written while he was still a student, received instant worldwide recognition.
Kabalevsky focused on writing lighter music for young performers; his playful and mischievous The Comedians suite portrays a group of travelling entertainers.
