  • Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 2

Shake off the end-of-winter doldrums with this evening of sunny melodies and toe-tapping mischief. Hold on to your hats as the nimble fingers of soloist Boris Giltburg dance their way through Shostakovich’s cheeky Piano Concerto No. 2. Giltburg’s 2017 recording of the concerto won rave reviews for its “dashing virtuosity” and “reckless, to-hell-with-it abandon.” End the evening on a bucolic note with Brahms’ Pastoral Symphony, a piece once decribed as “all rippling streams, blue sky, sunshine, and cool green shadows.”
