SHOSTAKOVICH (orch. Barshai) Chamber Symphony, Op.110a

Kolja Blacher
director / violin

He was not just a great organist and composer, J S Bach was also a fine violinist. This concert gives us the special opportunity to hear his two concertos for the instrument side-by-side. Come and experience the violin as it sings under the loving fingers of German violinist Kolja Blacher, who
also leads the HKPO through two very different symphonies, one (by Mozart)written in a mood of celebration, the other (by Shostakovich) written when the composer was at his lowest ebb.
