Two titans of music, Beethoven and Shostakovich, and how they harness the expressive range of the orchestra, from gloom to glory. In the hands of distinguished violinist Vadim Gluzman, the 1690 Stradivarius violin once owned by the legendary Leopold Auer will be your guide through the dark world of Shostakovich’s final concerto. SSO Chief Conductor Hans Graf leads this powerhouse concert that concludes with the all-consuming zeal of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony.

“Gluzman’s pure intonation is a constant glory”

BBC Music Magazine

Attend this Concert

Because every Shostakovich concerto is a must-see spectacle, and this one’s paired with Beethoven’s exciting Seventh Symphony.
