Stay warm this December as the KSO presents a concert of passionate Russian music filled with pomp, romantic virtuosity and soaring melodies. The program starts off with the fervent Festive Overture by Dmitri Shostakovich: a thrilling work written in a mere three days. The unsanctioned voice of Shostakovich is further explored with his dramatic Violin Concerto No. 1, performed by Canadian violinist Marc Djokic. Closing the night, is the lyrically emotive Symphony No. 2 by the ever-sentimental musical poet, Rachmaninoff.
