Concerto for cello and orchestra no. 1, op. 107 Dmitry Shostakovich
Symphony no. 4, op. 43


Even in his own lifetime, Shostakovich was one of the most widely played and most popular of classical composers. His greatest works speak directly to the heart; they are the poignant confessions of an artist who lived through the darkest years of Russian history, those of Stalinism and the Second World War. The Fourth Symphony is one of his undisputed masterpieces. We will hear it performed by the flamboyant and charismatic Gergiev and his Mariinsky Orchestra. An event that is sure to remain engraved in your memory!
