Debussy, Abrahamsen & Shostakovich

Hans Abrahamsen’s atmospheric new piano concerto, performed using only the left hand, brings to light how physical disabilities and social isolation can transform the acts of composing and listening to music. Abrahamsen’s whimsical arrangement of Debussy’s Children’s Corner opens the program, which also includes Lutosławski’s moving tribute to Béla Bartók and Shostakovich’s joyous Sixth Symphony.
