Wolfgang Amadeus MOZART, Violin Concerto No.4
Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH, Symphony No.11 The Year 1905

West Australian Symphony Orchestra Programme Note:
Shostakovich wrote some of the most devastatingly powerful music in the repertoire. Be transported back to Saint Petersburg in 1905 on the eve of the revolution with his intensely charged Eleventh Symphony, as world acclaimed Russian conductor Vasily Petrenko makes his WASO debut.

We open with the exuberant overture to Nielsen’s rollicking opera, Maskarade, then shine a light on one of Australia’s brightest musical talents. Emily Sun brings a perfect balance of expression and eloquence to Mozart’s Fourth Violin Concerto.
