Your SCSO’s Ninth Season closes with three powerful works. Aaron leads your orchestra in Kenneth Fuchs exciting piece Atlantic Riband, inspired by the SS United States‘ record-breaking maiden voyage. Superstar violinist Suliman Tekalli returns to Central Florida to brings out the dizzying virtuosity and grace of Tchaikovsky’s powerful Violin Concerto. The concert closes with Shostakovich’s stirring Symphony No. 5. Shostakovich called his Fifth Symphony ‘a Soviet artist’s creative response to just criticism’. Like everything in Stalin’s Russia though, the reality was a bit more complicated, and the music is a lot more stunning. One of the 20th century’s most powerful works, this is a concert you do not want to miss.
