It was marvelous. The musicians and Jennifer KOO excellent. The Russian Masters is not our most beloved music, but the evening at the Hollywood Bowl is magic.

Quotes & Highlights

Violinist Jennifer Koh plays the Janus-faced Concerto that Prokofiev wrote during the revolutionary upheavals of 1917.

Description

Program:

Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10

Fearless, Grammy-nominated virtuosa Jennifer Koh plays Prokofiev’s popular Violin Concerto No. 2 with its touches of Russian and Spanish folk culture. Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony, a tragic musical portrait of the Stalin years that was premiered after the dictator’s death, concludes with a moment of triumph. Noted conductor and scholar Leon Botstein leads this rich, all-Russian program.
