Vadim Returns! - Santa Rosa Symphony
We again experience the glorious sound of Vadim Gluzman as he returns to play Prokofiev’s soaring and energetic Violin Concerto No. 2 on the extraordinary 1690 ‘ex-Leopold Auer’ Stradivarius. All three composers in this program were fellow-survivors of the Stalinist era who struggled to maintain their creative freedom during a time of great repression in their homeland. The program opens with the lush folk-inspired melodies of Aram Khachaturian’s Ballet Suite from Masquerade and concludes with Shostakovich’s dramatic and compelling Symphony No. 11.
