The Hallé - Shostakovich's First Symphony on Thursday 14th March 2019
Dvorák - Scherzo capriccioso
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No.1
Shostakovich - Symphony No.1
Winner of the 2018 Leeds International Piano Competition
Czech conductor, Tomás Hanus, conducts Dvorák’s Scherzo capriccioso, bursting with Bohemian charm. The latest winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition will then take centre stage for Beethoven’s C major Concerto. As in all his early works, the genius has emerged fully-formed, although a deep admiration of Mozart’s piano concertos is evident in this, Beethoven’s First. Shostakovich’s astonishingly assured First Symphony lays out his youthful manifesto of where the symphonic form might go in the twentieth century, with an appreciative nod in the direction of tradition. More than anything, it’s great fun too!
