To mark the anniversary, this Russian Revolutionaries series from LSO St Luke's in London features four pianists from Russia, Georgia and the Ukraine delving into the riches of Russian piano music composed before, after and even during the momentous year of 1917 - by Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Medtner, Prokofiev and Shostakovich. The series begins today with Georgian pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja.
