Shostakovich Festive Overture
Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1
Two musical giants explore love, fear and make-believe.
Shostakovich’s Festive Overture bristles with vitality and wit, his First Violin Concerto searing and soul-bearing in music of fragile beauty, blistering emotions and thunderous defiance.
Stravinsky’s ‘ballet burlesque’ Petrushka brilliantly fuses folk music and puppetry into a richly animated phantasmagoria.
‘Extraordinary’ (New York Times) violinist Karen Gomyo and ‘startling conducting talent’ (Philadelphia Inquirer) Lio Kuokman promise an evening to remember.
