Shostakovich, Rachmaninoff and Schoenberg
Thursday, July 28, 2011
Elements of the new and grotesque tie tonight's program together, from the highly brash Shostakovich First Symphony and the sound waves created in Rachmaninoff's Isle of the Dead through the hysterical protagonist of Schoenberg's Erwartung. David Robertson leads the New York Philharmonic with guest soloist Deborah Voigt.
