Shostakovich 10

Sunday 29 October,14:15
Zuiderstrandtheater, The Hague


Russian Roulette

Nicholas Collon takes on three Russian masterpieces: Ljadov’s poetic and atmospheric Enchanted Lake, the Tenth Symphony by Shostakovich – with which we shook up the Alpha tent at Lowlands Music Festival – and, lastly, the cello concerto by the unjustly little-known Kabalevsky. A combination of sheer excitement, virtuosity and physicality, this concerto is just perfect for the super-talented Leonard Elschenbroich.
