Young Artists and Shostakovich Symphony No. 15

Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15 (his last) is a surreal exposition where nothing is quite as it seems, where quotations from music of Rossini, Wagner, and Glinka, take us on an existential journey into the beyond. This concert also features winners from Millikin’s Young Artists Competition.

Silvan Negrutiu’s performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No.3 is contrasted by Rautavaara’s ethereal Cantus arcticus, a piece that incorporates tape recordings of bird songs recorded near the Arctic Circle and on the bogs of Liminka in northern Finland. You won’t want to miss Beethoven’s confrontational Symphony No. 3, a piece that caused a sensation and changed the idea of what a symphony could be.
