Korngold & Shostakovich
January 14 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm$10 – $50
Beethoven: Overture to Leonore No. 3
Korngold: Violin Concerto
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
This afternoon Kingston Symphony concert includes a trio of magnificent works by composers who were looking for a slice of redemption. Beethoven slaved over his revisions to his only opera to get it just so; Korngold wrote his lyrical Violin Concerto in an effort to return to ‘serious’ composition; and at great personal risk, Shostakovich presented his stunning Fifth Symphony in the face of Soviet censorship.
Tickets range in price from $10 – $50 and can be purchased by calling the Grand Theatre Box Office at 613-530-2050 or visiting www.kingstonsymphony.ca.
