BRAHMS Violin Concerto
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 5

The possible hidden meanings within Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony have long fascinated audiences and critics alike. Along the way, expect a beautiful melody evoking Carmen, circus-inspired spectacle, and majestic brass chords. But beyond the Soviet heroism lies something more: framed by the musical drama lies the hushed religious contemplation of the third movement, the tender heart of the symphony that moved the audience to tears at its 1937 premiere.

Alina Pogostkina performs Brahms’s Violin Concerto, which features one of the most heartfelt melodies ever written for violin.

6.15pm Insights Talk (Free, no ticket required) Xian Zhang in conversation with John Florance.
