MOZART: Piano Concerto No. 21
SHOSTAKOVICH: Symphony No. 7, Leningrad
Spanish conducting sensation Juanjo Mena, the recently appointed Principal Conductor of the May Festival, leads the Orchestra in Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 7, Leningrad. Written in 1941 in passionate response to oppression and censorship, it remains one of the composer’s most enduring and powerful works. Spanish pianist Javier Perianes performs Mozart’s sublime Piano Concerto No. 21—known as the Elvira Madigan, this majestic work will be familiar to audiences.
Get inside the minds of composers and to the heart of the music with Classical Conversations, one hour before Friday, Saturday and Sunday Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra subscription concerts.
