Debussy & Shostakovich

Debussy & Shostakovich

St David's Hall
United Kingdom

Conductor François-Xavier Roth
Violin Daniel Hope

The vibrant orchestral colours of Debussy's Images conjure the heat, dancing crowds, and intoxicating fragrance of Spain, including the atmospheric sun-drenched Iberia. Shostakovich's troubled and searingly urgent First Violin Concerto is one of his greatest works. It is preceded by a contemporary piece, Philippe Manoury's Sound and Fury, based on the title of William Faulkner's novel.
