Beethoven: Overture to Leonore No. 3
Korngold: Violin Concerto
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
This afternoon concert includes a trio of magnificent works by composers who were looking for a slice of redemption. Beethoven slaved over his revisions to his only opera to get it just so; Korngold wrote his lyrical Violin Concerto in an effort to return to ‘serious’ composition; and at great personal risk Shostakovich presented his stunning Fifth Symphony in the face of Soviet censorship.
