Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto
Shostakovich Symphony No.11, ‘The Year 1905’
Vasily Petrenko conductor
Christian Li violin
Russia, 1905: crowds fill the streets, and a great nation teeters on the brink of revolution. Shostakovich’s massive Eleventh Symphony is one of those pieces that you simply have to hear live – and with the Orchestra’s incredible set of full-size church bells, it’ll sound even larger than life. Vasily Petrenko conducts it for the first time in Liverpool: a powerful contrast to the romance of Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, played by rising star Christian Li.
Post-concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Conductor Laureate Vasily Petrenko.
