Symphony No. 8, Shostakovich

London Philharmonic Orchestra

Oct18
8:00 PM
Lindberg, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich
Saturday, October 18, 2014

Among the world’s most versatile orchestras, the London Philharmonic Orchestra brings its invigorating perspective to two works inspired by musical heroes. Lindberg’s richly textured Chorale reconceives a Bach cantata theme, and Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini invents 24 glittering piano variations on a melody by the famed violinist. Completing the program is Shostakovich’s Eighth Symphony, a profound work that explores sounds of light, darkness, loss and consolation.

The London Philharmonic Orchestra's 2014 US Tour is generously supported by the Dunard Fund and the American Friends of the London Philharmonic Orchestra
