Description

Sunday, September 30, 2018 at 3:00pm: Defiance & Peace
Rembrandt opens its 29th season with music of defiance and peace. Dimitri Shostakovich composed in the Soviet Union during the early days of World War II when violating dictated musical conventions could result in exile or death. Though his piano quintet won the Stalin State Prize, it subtly mocks Stalin’s regime through the clever use of musical codes and “wrong” notes. Malcolm Arnold, composer of The Bridge on the River Kwai film score, registered as a conscientious objector in 1941. The program concludes with J.S. Bach’s tranquil Brandenburg Concerto No. 5, featuring a virtuosic harpsichord solo by guest artist Mark Shuldiner.
BACH: Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D major, BWV 1050
SHOSTAKOVICH: Piano Quintet in G Minor, op. 57
ARNOLD: Oboe Quartet, op. 61
