UNSUK CHIN Frontispiece | DALLAS PREMIERE
SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No. 1
R. STRAUSS Symphonia Domestica

Unsuk Chin’s 2019 orchestral time-capsule is “seven minutes of soundscapes, juxtaposed violently, then resting peacefully, with pedal points, blurrings and harmonic advances…” (Das Orchester).

Inspired by the works of Prokofiev, Shostakovich’s First Cello Concerto opens with a jocular march, riddled with solo cello and horn passages, leading to outbursts from the woodwinds, carrying Georgian folk tunes throughout the latter movements.

Richard Strauss’s autobiographical Symphonia Domestica depicts his family life, complete with orchestral lullabies, shrieks, clock chimes and the usual lively chaos of home.
