The dazzling musical fireworks of Shostakovich’s Festive Overture are pure entertainment, and the perfect way to open this program of triumphant, witty and brilliant virtuosity from two extraordinary soloists, conducted by the exciting Giordano Bellincampi.

Pianist Alexander Melnikov brings his impressive energy to Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto. Principal Trumpet David Elton weaves a tender, sombre magic in its delightfully wistful passages.

Every tale here is told with beauty and magnificence, presenting us with enthralling and very human portraits.
