02.10.2017

Otto Tausk will feature in an ambitious new series for BBC Four: ‘Tunes For Tyrants: Music & Power with Suzy Klein’. Created as part of the BBC’s Russian-themed season to mark the centenary of the October Revolution, this three-part series will see Suzy Klein explore how the power of music to rouse our emotions and gave it a crucial role in some of the most turbulent years of the 20th Century – from the Russian revolution and the dictatorships of Hitler and Stalin to World War 2. The rich repertoire of musical stories is brought wonderfully to life through performances by the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and its Chorus, conducted by Otto Tausk.

The first episode will air in the UK on BBC 4 on Monday 2 October at 21:00, with the next two episodes to follow at the same time on subsequent Mondays.
