Шостакович: Симфония № 13 «Бабий Яр»

Берлинская Филармония, Берлин

At these concerts, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, chief conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, encounters Lisa Batiashvili – a violinist both virtuoso and sensitive, and thus the ideal interpreter of Bartók’s yearning Violin Concerto No. 1, in which the composer came to terms with an unrequited love. Following this, the orchestra will perform Shostakovich’s 13th Symphony: a staggering accusation against anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union.
