Vallejo Symphony Concert I - Vibrant
Beethoven, Leonore Overture No. 1
Shostakovich Symphony No. 1
Rachmaninoff, Piano concerto No. 2
Marc Taddei, conductor
David Fung, soloist
Musicians often speak of prodigy composers, and Shostakovich is a special example of this. His first symphony was written when he was 19 and still at university. It appears fully formed, with all of his trademark sardonic wit and vibrancy. Partner this youthful masterpiece with the luscious Rachmaninoff piano concerto and the excitement of starting a cycle by a great master, and we think we have a recipe for great enjoyment.
