2016-10-11

In October Vasily Petrenko will take the reins of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra to conduct the Symphony no. 10 in E minor, op. 93 by Dmitry Shostakovich. This symphony was composed shortly after the death of Stalin and is often considered an “optimistic tragedy”. Also on the programme are the Beethoven's  Coriolan Overture, op. 62 and Concerto no. 3 for piano, which will feature the Israeli musician Inon Barnatan as soloist. The concerts are scheduled for October 14th and 16th at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall and for October 15th at the Strathmore Music Center.
