SIBELIUS Violin Concerto in D Minor, Op. 47
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 10 in E Minor, Op. 93
Augustin Hadelich, named the 2018 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year, returns to Rochester to perform Sibelius’ only concerto, a mercilessly beautiful, yet highly virtuosic work. Triumph is the theme of Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony—the composer takes audiences on a musical journey through Soviet Russia’s Stalin devastating years.
