Information on the activity
Dates to come
Illustrious violinist Maxim Vengerov will perform Shostakovich’s First Concerto under the baton of Israeli-Danish conductor Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider. Composed in the aftermath of the Second World War, this Concerto progresses through irony, tragedy and festive atmospheres—all key ingredients in Shostakovich’s music. Meanwhile, Austrian composer Zemlinsky’s orchestral fantasy The Mermaid, loosely based on Andersen’s tale, depicts in colourful episodes this heroine’s vain quest for love.
