The Hallé - Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony on Thursday 15th November 2018

Schubert - Overture: Rosamunde
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No.2
Shostakovich - Symphony No.10

Kazushi Ono

Paul Lewis, piano

Kazushi Ono, a conductor described by Le Figaro as ‘one of the most fascinating musical minds of our era’, contrasts Viennese fantasy with Russian realism. Schubert’s Rosamunde overture owes a stylistic debt to Beethoven, yet it also contains Schubert’s own personal brand of grace and charm. The incomparable Paul Lewis is soloist in Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto, a work of ingenuity, lyricism and, ultimately, mischief. Much has been written about Shostakovich’s epic Tenth Symphony: that it took its final shape as a result of the sense of relief occasioned by Stalin’s death; or that its menacing second movement was a portrait of Stalin and the terrors of his regime. Shostakovich simply said that he had ‘wanted to portray human feelings and passions.’ Whatever was meant, it is a remarkably powerful musical journey.
