About this opportunity
Opportunity Provider: Hallé Concerts Society
This event is Shostakovich's Defiant Response at the Bridgewater Hall on 19 September 2019 at 7:30 pm.
About this concert: Beethoven’s exhilarating overture to his only ballet, The Creatures of Prometheus, starts the season and heralds Hallé debuts by two young Nordic artists. Finnish conductor Klaus Mäkelä may only be 23, but he’s already Chief Conductor of the Oslo Philharmonic, while Víkingur Ólafsson has been described by the New York Times as ‘Iceland’s Glen Gould’. He plays Beethoven’s youthful, ambitious First Piano Concerto. After a savage, very public, dressing down by Stalin, Shostakovich responded with his Mahlerian Fifth Symphony. Superficially a traditional symphonic journey from tragedy to triumph, in reality it’s a work of subtle, undercover ironic defiance with hidden references known only to Shostakovich, as if he is saying ‘don’t you dare tell me what to write’.
