Conservatory Orchestra Series - Mozart and Shostakovich

Join Singapore Symphony Orchestra Music Director, Lan Shui, as he conducts the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory Orchestra for the first time. Tonight’s programme features the delightful Sinfonia Concertante by Mozart, featuring faculty members Qian Zhou and Zhang Manchin as soloists. The orchestra will then perform Dmitri Shostakovich’s powerful, tragic and savage masterpiece: Symphony No. 10. Often referred to as Shostakovich’s 'portrait of Stalin', this is the first symphonic work written after the composer’s denunciation in 1948.
