Introduction/abstract

Tonkunstler-Orchester · Baiba Skride · Dmitry Liss

VIKTOROVA · BEETHOVEN · SCHOSTAKOWITSCH

Latvian Baiba Skride is widely admired for her deeply emotional, virtuoso violin playing. Here she performs Beethoven’s springlike Violin Concerto with Dmitry Liss and the Tonkunstler Orchestra. Similarly springlike is the «mood of joy and youth» in Shostakovich’s Sixth. The concert opens with a piece by Russian composer Olga Viktorova, whose philosophy is to make the impossible audible.
