Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski will conduct the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing Shostakovich and Szymanowski on Saturday 16 January 2010 at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall.
Szymanowski’s Violin Concerto 1 is full of emotion that captures the audience from the first note with the singing violin line beautifully complimenting the kaleidoscope of colour from the orchestra.
A huge and powerful work, Shostakovich's Symphony 4 expresses ideas and feelings at a time when people felt they had no voice. Moving from heavy march motifs to light, fleeting melodies before ending with a dark and mysterious coda this symphony is overflowing with intensity and passion.
