Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 2

Masterworks Series >

The bravest artists are willing to stretch and scrabble toward truth and greatness. Brahms, in his First Symphony, crafts an ode to personal freedom, lifting his heavy burden of history and self-doubt. Bartók peers unflinchingly at the seedy underbelly of life in The Miraculous Mandarin, his outrageously colorful story of seduction and treachery.

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4

Masterworks Series >

The power of fate collides with the search for happiness in Tchaikovsky’s deeply felt Fourth Symphony. Violinist Viktoria Mullova and cellist Matthew Barley bring a new work to Seattle, composed for them by Pascal Dusapin. The fanciful title of this double concerto, At Swim-Two-Birds, comes from a subversive Irish novel, but the composer’s sonic tradition is distinctly French, filled with the same joie de vivre that enlivens Debussy’s Petite suite.
