Guest Artist: Sergey Antonov, cello
Passion, depth, and texture are all on display in this concert which includes four minutes of Glazunov ‘s romantic lush melody a la Rachmaninov and a sweeping epic that you can practically see as well as hear--a musical “Dr. Zhivago” by Shostakovich, Glazunov’s pupil.
GLAZUNOV: Chant du Ménéstrel
HAYDN: Cello Concerto in C Major
SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 11, “The Year 1905”
