RSNO Shostakovich Ten

7:30pm, Friday 18 October 2019

Elim Chan                  Conductor
Martin Grubinger      Percussion
 
Kalevi Aho                 Siedi (Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra)
Shostakovich            Symphony No.10

Under Stalin’s regime, sometimes only music could speak the truth. The Soviet authorities called Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony an ‘optimistic tragedy’, but this vast, brooding masterpiece is actually a shatteringly powerful portrait of a human spirit battling impossible odds. With our dynamic Principal Guest Conductor Elim Chan, it should be a gripping journey, and a powerful contrast to Sieidi, an explosive percussion workout from the forests of Finland, starring the world-renowned soloist Martin Grubinger. He’s been called a force of nature!
