Shostakovich Concerto No. 1 for cello
Bruckner Symphony No. 2
An unusual, or even surprising programme presented by Danish conductor Thomas Dausgaard and Chinese cellist Jian Wang. Shostakovich’s work delivers irony and sarcasm, but also reveals a poignant lyricism in the slow movement. The score emerged from the friendship between the composer and the young Mstislav Rostropovich, who learned the concerto in four days flat! Bruckner’s Symphony No. 2 was completed in 1872, and belongs to a completely different tonal register. This work is bursting with dramatic ideas and draws inspiration from the rhythmic writing of Beethoven and the harmonies of Wagner. The Orchestre de chambre de Paris is making its first foray into the flamboyant symphonic world of the Austrian composer.
