SHOSTAKOVICH: Concerto for Violin and Orchestra No. 1, Op. 77
MUSSORGSKY: Pictures at an Exhibition

Interpreters and guest artists

Michal Nesterowicz, conductor
Sergej Krylov, violin

Krylov, considered to be among the top violinists in the world, brings us one of the most indispensable concertos of the 20th century. Mussorgsky’s inspiration to write this brilliant and original work came from the paintings of his friend, Hartmann. Ravel orchestrated the piece and made it immortal.

Program

Shostakovich hid his Violin Concerto for fear that the cultural policy of the Stalinist regime would accuse him of being "formalist". A few years later, when the situation had abated, it was premiered by the legendary David Oistrakh and the world discovered this true work of art. One of Ravel's talents was orchestrating scores written for piano. This is what he did with his own works: he wrote them in black and white, at the piano, and later "painted" them with the colours of the orchestra, and included new colours such as the sax. In 1922 he painted Mussorgsky’s Pictures and transformed them into one of the most popular pieces of concerto music of all time.
