Shostakovich: Suite from Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk
Shostakovich: Piano Concerto No2
Shostakovich: Symphony No5
James Conlon Conductor
Simon Trpčeski Piano
Shostakovich wrote his Fifth Symphony in terror for his life and gave it the title ‘A Soviet artist’s response to justified criticism’. But the music tells another story: of fear, resistance and unbreakable courage. James Conlon explores the many faces of a 20th century genius – joining the phenomenal Simon Trpčeski in the delightful Concerto that Shostakovich wrote for his teenage son and unleashing the raw satirical energy of Lady Macbeth: music so outrageous that Stalin had it banned.
