Shostakovich: Concerto for Piano, Trumpet, and String Orchestra
Dvořák: Serenade for Strings

The NBSO is back with another fantastic virtual concert!

Join us on November 21 as we safely place 22 musicians (strings and trumpet) plus Yaniv and Alexander on stage at The Z for a fantastic virtual performance of Shostakovich and Dvořák!

Shostakovich’s first Piano Concerto is an emotional roller coaster that begins in a restrained manner only to spiral out of control by the end. Written for the unusual instrumentation of piano, strings, and trumpet, the piece spans musical styles and includes quotations from folk songs, classical music, cabaret, and silent films. Winner of the 1995 Arthur Rubinstein Competition, Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia joins the NBSO for this masterpiece.

Somewhat of an antidote to Shostakovich, Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings is really a symphony for string orchestra. Written in only 12 days, it remains one of Dvořák’s most popular works and one of the pinnacles of romantic music.

Concert will be available for viewing November 21 – December 20, 2020.

This concert will be pre-recorded at the Zeiterion Performing Arts Center and presented via YouTube.com. All ticketed patrons will receive an email on the day of the concert containing your private link for access. A digital program book will be available to view before the concert airs.
