Chelsea Opera Group - Rubinstein - The Demon

All this was brought together under the expert baton of Oliver Zeffman (the Classical Music nominee for The Times Breakthrough Artist Award at the 2018 South Bank Sky Arts Awards). Zeffman creates a real sense of flow, sensing the work’s architecture brilliantly, allowing the strength of Rubinstein’s music to come through strongly.
