Debussy & Shostakovich

 25 May 2012 at 7.30pm 

Debussy & Shostakovich

St David's Hall
Cardiff
United Kingdom

BBCNOW
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.
