FREE! Shostakovich Symphony No. 5 and Concierto de Aranjuez

Classical guitarist Piotr Pakhomkin's flawless delivery and intuitive approach to music have thrilled audiences and critics around the world. On UMRO's third concert of the year, Pakhomkin will perform Joaquin Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez (Concerto for Guitar). The concert also features Shostakovich's monumental Fifth Symphony, one of the most popular works in the symphonic canon. Written during Stalins regime of terror, Shostakovichs very life depended on the governments reception of this symphony. Incredibly, the government was taken with the bombastic, seemingly patriotic elements of the piece, while the Russian people related to the harrowing, painful nature of the pieces haunting moments. {Will appear in FYI on Mar 12, 2014
