Lera Auerbach Icarus
Shostakovich Cello Concerto No1
Thomas Søndergård Conductor
Pei-Jee Ng Cello
Shostakovich told dark truths in Stalin’s Russia; Icarus tried to fly to the sun; and Scheherazade just wanted to keep her head! They all knew how to tell a story, and from Lera Auerbach’s Greek myth to Rimsky-Korsakov’s 1001 nights, Music Director Thomas Søndergård will make every note spring to life. Plus, the RSNO’s new Principal Cello, Pei-Jee Ng, takes the spotlight in Shostakovich’s Cold War thriller of a concerto.
Dedicated to Dr Robert Lillie in recognition of his generous support of the RSNO Foundation.
