PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 1, “Classical”
MOZART Piano Concerto No.17
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 5

Jaap van Zweden  returns to Dallas for Shostakovich’s eloquent Fifth Symphony. Despite its grandeur and optimistic façade — huge climaxes, triumphant marches, exhilarating brass and percussion — a profound sadness cries out in the third movement, the spiritual center of the work. Yet, one critic says, “some shadow of Shostakovich’s indomitable spirit had seeped, surreptitiously, into the souls of attentive listeners.” Conrad Tao “ferociously talented” (TimeOut New York) joins our Conductor Laureate and the orchestra for Mozart’s elegant Piano Concerto No. 17. Opening the concert is Prokofiev’s charming Haydn-inspired “Classical” Symphony.
