In this intriguing recital programme, Steven programmes together the work of four legendary Russian composer-pianists, with two beguiling recent works for cello and piano by Mikhail Pletnev and Evgeny Kissin forming a lyrical counterpart to the cello sonatas of Shostakovich and Rachmaninov.

Pletnev - Cello Sonata
Kissin - Sonata-Ballade for cello and piano
Rachmaninov - Cello Sonata
