Shostakovich Second Piano Concerto
Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances
Amid the mountainous landscape of his other works, Shostakovich's Second Piano Concerto is a lovely flower meadow, playful, tender and light-footed. Only the middle section: played by star pianist Yuja Wang, it belongs, according to The Guardian, 'to the most beautiful thing Shostakovich ever wrote'. This Andante sounds like an ode to Rachmaninov, who gets the last word here with his delightful Symphonic Dances.
Introduction on Thursday and Friday at 7:15 pm and on Sunday at 1:15 pm by Emanuel Overbeeke.
