Mikhail Glinka - Ruslan and Lyudmila Overture
Sergei Prokofiev - Piano Concerto No. 3 in C major, Op.26
Dmitri Shostakovich - Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op.93

The famous overture to Glinka's opera Ruslan and Lyudmila sets the scene before renowned Italian pianist Pietro de Maria joins the orchestra for a performance of Prokofiev's Third Piano Concerto.

Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony was premiered following Stalin's death in 1953, five years after the composer was denounced by the Stalinist régime for the second time. It is believed to be a musical depiction of the dictator's capriciousness and the terror of his rule.
