Rodion Shchedrin: Naughty Limericks
Tchaikovsky: Violin Concerto
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5
2016 Grammy Award-winner Augustin Hadelich returns to the North Carolina Symphony with Tchaikovsky’s immortal Violin Concerto. The program also includes Shchedrin’s charming and cheeky Naughty Limericks, and the classical season closes with the dramatic Symphony No. 5 by Shostakovich—a work that sounds triumphant on the surface but remains wrapped in the mystery of the composer’s true message for the Soviet regime.
