BRUCH– Violin Concerto
SHOSTAKOVICH– Symphony No. 10

Bruch’s superlative Violin Concerto is at once fiery and romantic, sparkling and seductive—and a showcase for our virtuoso Concertmaster Rimma Bergeron-Langlois. In the Tenth Symphony Shostakovich unleashes his fury against Stalin in a violent, demonic musical battle with pitches equivalent to the initials of his name, D-S-C-H, pounded out like a code that crushes the tyrant in the wild, triumphant finale. Raising the curtain is the OPO premiere of a thrilling new work by Pulitzer Prize-winning Cuban-American composer Tania León, whose music is “infused with a vigorous pluralism” ( ~ The New York Times).
