Vadim Repin

About the event

Violin Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 63

Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Op. 28

Symphony No. 9 in E flat major, Op. 70

Vadim Repin violin

Marios Papadopoulos conductor

Vadim Repin makes a welcome return following his heartening performance with us in 2016. This time, the Russian violinist brings us not Shostakovich but Prokofiev, and a concerto in which wondrous fantasy and nervous energy meet to enchanting effect. After Prokofiev's concerto and a deliciously impulsive slice of Saint-Saens, Marios Papadopoulos takes us back to Shostakovich and life in mid-century Soviet Russia. Beneath the clashing waltzes and cartoon chases of the composer's ninth symphony of 1945 is the underlying message that life under the regime was anything but fun.
Concert time: 7:30pm
This concert is scheduled to end at 9:10 pm.
