The wry wit of Dmitri Shostakovich
Here's a rare chance to enjoy the light-hearted music of a composer more widely known for his somber tone. We bring you Shostakovich's Symphony 9, full of exuberant tunes with just a hint of apprehension, complemented by his Tahiti Trot version of Tea for Two and two medleys of humorous dances from his stage and screen music: Ballet Suite 1 and Suite for Variety Orchestra 1 - the latter featuring both accordion and saxophone. Bonus: A performer shares insights into the music at the start of the concert.
