The music of two revolutionaries, Shostakovich and Beethoven, populate this program that will feature the incomparable artistry of violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlman. Treasured by audiences throughout the world, hear him live right in our community, performing the Beethoven Violin Concerto with your SSO. Stalin was expecting a piece to rival Beethoven’s ninth symphony when he asked Shostakovich for his ninth symphony but what he got was a humorous romp with a trombone player who is perennially in the wrong place!
