CLASSICAL CONCERT | Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich | Belém | 4,50-22€
Orquestra Sinfónica Portuguesa, under the direction of Emil Tabakov, performs Tchaikovski and Shostakovich, with Esther Yoo on violin. And expect a little Stalin in this one… Tickets are here.
From the organizers:
This will be truly a Russian afternoon at the CCB, with the unforgettable concert for violin and orchestra by Piotr Ilich Tchaikovski and the monumental Symphony No. 10 by Dmitri Shostakovich. For the concert, the Portuguese Symphony Orchestra will feature the violinist Esther Yoo, acclaimed worldwide for her “impeccable mastery” and her “warm and aristocratic” sound, which will give particular shape to this concert by Tchaikovski. In turn, the conductor Emil Tabakov, a specialist in this repertoire, will present the 10th Symphony of Schostakovich. This is part of a large group of works of autobiographical character. There are several characters at stake in a symphony whose setting is the years of Stalin’s dictatorship, himself portrayed in one of the movements.
