SHOSTAKOVICHViolin Concerto no. 1Listen
TCHAIKOVSKYSymphony no. 6, PathétiqueListen


Leonidas Kavakos is being increasingly referred to as the greatest violinist of our time, and in this concert Leonidas Kavakos will perform Shostakovich’s epic First Violin Concerto. We pair it with another truly epic Russian symphony, the famous Pathétique  which, with its intense emotional impact – not least its profoundly moving final movement – has long been referred to as the epitome of Romantic music. It is very anticipating to witness Jaap van Zweden conducting  Pathétique on the HK Phil podium for the first time.
