Rodion Shchedrin: 85th Birthday on 18 December

Schott congratulates the Russian composer Rodion Shchedrin who will be celebrating his 85th birthday on 16 December 2017! After performances of his works LevshaBoyarina MorozovaTwo Tangos by Albéniz and others, the highlight of the birthday year is still ahead of us: On 9 December, his Dialogues with Shostakovich will be performed for the first time in the
UK by the BBC Philharmonic with conductor Juanjo Mena at the Bridgewater Hall in
Manchester. A few days after Shchedrin’s birthday, the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra will give two gala concerts (19 and 20 December) in his honour: together with Valery Gergiev and the Munich Philharmonic Choir, they will perform the “opera for the concert stage” The Enchanted Wanderer at the Philharmonie.
Right in time for his birthday, Schott has published the study score (ED 22786) and the vocal
score (ED 22785) of Shchedrin’s A Christmas Tale, premiered with overwhelming success at the
famous Mariinsky Theatre in Saint Petersburg in December 2015. UK and US premieres are still available, however, for this charming Christmas tale.
