Mahler Symphony No. 7
GUSTAV MAHLER: Symphony No. 7
SHOSTAKOVICH SYMPHONY NO. 5
Shostakovich’s symphonic "double agent" is immensely gripping.
DANÍEL BJARNASON: New Work, Part I [US Premiere, CSO Co-Commission]
SERGEI RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 1
DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 5
If there is any symphony that operates like a “double agent,” it is Shostakovich's Fifth. Having found himself targeted by Stalin, Shostakovich composed himself out of a dangerous situation−with immensely gripping results. Stephen Hough returns for Rachmaninoff and Louis Langrée conducts the first part of a new multi-year work by Icelandic composer Daníel Bjarnason.
