Why See New York Philharmonic - Jaap Van Zweden conducts Shostakovich?
One of the repertoire's longest works, Shostakovich's monumental seventh symphony, known as the Leningrad Symphony, is an unforgettable expression of resistance in the face of war, composed as it was during the Nazi occupation of the pieces namesake city. Seen as a tribute to human triumph over the regime, it is a moving testament to those who lost their lives fighting for a better tomorrow that proves an unforgettable experience for the listener.
Also, the evening will commence with Britten's poignant Violin Concerto as performed by Simone Lamsma. Ripe with beauty and touching melodies, it is the perfect prologue to what will likely be a throughly heart-rending night at the David Geffen Hall.
