Baldur Brönnimann, conductor
Johannes Moser, cello
Shostakovich’s most popular symphony, created when he and his country were under extreme duress, is one of the most soulful and gripping symphonies of all time. Add Saint-Saëns’ cello concerto performed by one of the finest young cellists today, and you’ve got an evening that will be long remembered.
