Debussy & Shostakovich

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 sun-drenched Iberia. Shostakovich's dark, troubled and searingly urgent First Violin Concerto is one of his greatest works. John Adams's Lollapalooza precedes it: a short punchy dancing firecracker of a piece that'll have you tapping
your foot within seconds.
