Kansas City Symphony Classical Concert: Dvořák’s Eighth with Shostakovich


Friday, October 27, 2017 - 20:00


Helzberg Hall, Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts

Description: Michael Stern, conductor Mayu Kishima, violin SUK Scherzo fantastique SHOSTAKOVICH Violin Concerto No. 1 DVOŘÁK Symphony No. 8 Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony overflows with optimism, melodic genius and folk melodies of his native land. Spanning from dark and brooding to wild and fervent, Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto is played by Mayu Kishima, winner of the Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition. It’s an intensely personal and technically demanding work that weaves the composer’s signature musical motif throughout. This Kansas City Symphony concert also includes Suk’s Fantastic Scherzo, a brilliant work with fetching dance rhythms and melodies saturated with shimmering orchestral colors. Tickets from $25.
