Patricia Kopatchinskaja Plays Shostakovich

Details

Sibelius sees a flight of swans on a summer evening, and hears a melody that could have been wrought from the elements. Britten opens the emotional floodgates and creates one of 20th-century music’s mightiest outpourings of grief. And Shostakovich whispers secrets in the shadows, in a concerto that refuses to be silent. It’s all about memory, and all about truth. Big music demands big personalities, and they don’t come much bigger than violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja: virtuoso, storyteller and all-round phenomenon. With Edward Gardner conducting, she’ll drive straight to the heart of this powerful programme.
