    Joshua Bell returns to L’Auditori, this time with one of the great Romantic concertos, Dvořák’s concerto for violin. Like Brahms' violin concerto, this is a demanding piece to take on, its difficulty and symphonic treatment taking it beyond virtuosity.

    Now in the 21st century, there is no doubt that this is a “complete concerto”, one of the great challenges for modern violinists. The composer worked on the piece with the finest violinist of the time, Joseph Joachim, but after four years of editing, Dvořák decided to premiere it with a different soloist. Shostakovich’s tenth symphony became a symbol of the new road taken by Russia after the death of Stalin. Premiered shortly after the dictator's death, despite Shostakovich’s claim that he only wanted to express “the feelings and passions of being human”, it was received by audiences as a critique of Stalinist oppression. This is a striking work from the composer's later period, and one which is also considered to contain a biographical element.
