Beethoven Piano Concerto No 5 (‘Emperor’)
Shostakovich Symphony No 11 ('The Year 1905')

Yakov Kreizberg conductor

The Fifth Piano Concerto is Beethoven at his boldest and most grandly heroic, yet it also finds time for a middle movement of hushed, awe-inspiring beauty. Shostakovich’s skill as a film composer stood him in good stead for his Eleventh Symphony, a compelling evocation of the events the 1905 Revolution, ranging from the eerie quiet of an empty Palace Square, to the brutality of the ‘Bloody Sunday’ massacre, to the final re-stirrings of revolutionary anger.
