This event has ended

See upcoming Classical events

Shostakovich’s final symphony and Beethoven’s last piano concerto both emerged under difficult circumstances: ill health in the case of Shostakovich the bombing of Vienna for Beethoven. Each marked the culmination of a musical language in their respective genres, and both are profoundly moving in their depth and eloquence. Two eras, two aesthetics, two masterpieces!
