Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski as he conducts Shostakovich and Szymanowski on Saturday 16 January 2010 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra

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.
