LIVESTREAM: Gluzman plays Shostakovich

September 21, 2017, 7:34 AM · Here is a live stream of a concert Thursday, featuring Vadim Gluzman playing the Shostakovich Concerto No. 2 with the Gothenburg Symphony (starting at 27:48), Enjoy! (This will be available to view on demand for 30 days.)

PROGRAM:

Here is the description: "A Russian evening with Russian composers and Russian conductor! Glazunov’s beautiful concert waltz introduces and paves the way for Shostakovich’s Second Violin Concerto with Israeli Vadim Gluzman – a highly skilled violinist who really makes his instrument sing.
The concerto was written to celebrate the master violinist David Oistrakh’s 60th birthday, and Shostakovich saw it as a challenge to surpass himself with this birthday gift. He had suffered a heart attack the year before and his apprehension and longing for life colour this intense and profound violin concerto.

The evening ends with a grand première: Victoria Borisova-Olla’s Second Symphony, a piece commissioned by Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, in the safe hands of Andrey Boreyko."
