Tchaikovsky’s Lustrous Violin Concerto

Maison symphonique February 19 and 20, 2025

The gracefulness and melodic suppleness of Tchaikovsky’s celebrated Violin Concerto stand in stark contrast to the dramatic intensity of Shostakovich’s Symphony no. 11. With Shostakovich, music became a living testimony of human history, and in this arresting, powerfully disconcerting work, the composer is the eulogist of the oppressed, denouncing political repression in all its forms. This concert will mark the OSM debut of brilliant young violinist Sergey Khachatryan.

Pyotr Ilyich TCHAIKOVSKY, Violin Concerto in D major, op. 35 (33 min.)
Dmitri SHOSTAKOVICH, Symphony no. 11 in G minor, op. 103, “The Year 1905” (55 min.)
