Khachaturian Violin Concerto
Shostakovich Symphony No.10

Mark Wigglesworth conductor
James Ehnes violin

As big, bold and beautiful as his ballet music for Gayaneh and Spartacus, Khatchaturian’s Violin Concerto is a powerhouse concerto tailor-made for the sublimely talented Canadian violinist James Ehnes. We travel to a darker, more conflicted Russia for Shostakovich’s masterful symphony.

Pre-concert talk
Emerging artists from the University of Melbourne School of Music will extend and enhance the MSO concert experience with a performance of Russian chamber music.
