Orchestral Masterworks: Shostakovich's Symphony no 106:15pm | 05 May 2017 | Amaryllis Fleming Concert Hall
Rafael Payare conductor
Shostakovich Symphony no 10 in E minor op 93
Rafael Payare, Chief Conductor of the Ulster Orchestra, conducts the RCM Philharmonic in Shostakovich's powerful Tenth Symphony. From tragedy to triumph, the symphony is widely speculated to depict Stalin’s time in power, travelling through terrifying march and waltz movements complete with military drums. It concludes with a victorious chord symbolising the end of his rule.
