Few musicians in the world have the skill to master Dmitri Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1. The original soloist reportedly begged the composer in rehearsal: “For God’s sake Dmitri, give me eight bars of rest, so that I can wipe the sweat off my neck!” 

Thrill to the prowess of violin virtuoso Guy Braunstein as he matches his mettle to the electrifying work.

Performance is approximately 2 hours including intermission
