Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1

 Prokofiev Romeo & Juliet, Selections from Suite Nos. 1 & 2

Stellar violinist Yoonshin Song is soloist in Shostakovich’s liberating First Violin Concerto—premiered a few years after Stalin’s death in 1953. A sonic journey unfolds—from its eerie opening and dazzling Scherzo, to a Baroque passacaglia with one of the most challenging cadenzas ever written for the violin. The final movement—Burlesca—is a rollicking folk dance over powerful rhythms. Also, selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet Suites—from capricious and playful to powerful and intense.
