Richard Wagner — Prelede and Liebestod (Love-Death): In a program built around music that skillfully narrates happiness and tragedy, this evocative piece opens with an exploration of the primal nature of love.
Schumann — Cello Concerto in A Minor: Cellist Rachel Mercer performs this popular piece, which Schumann penned during a brief moment of optimism.
Shostakovich—Symphony No. 10: This emotional symphony evokes tragedy, despair, and violence before concluding in two brief minutes of well-earned triumph—a structure that has left many wondering if the work is actually about the reign of Stalin, especially since Stalin had Shostakovich publicly denounced. After all, the piece did debut in December of 1953, just months after Stalin’s death.
