KILAR – Orawa

BEETHOVEN – Piano Concerto No. 4

SHOSTAKOVICH – Symphony No. 10

Conductor Michal Nesterowicz brings us Orawa, a short piece by his fellow Polish countryman Wojciech Kilar, as an appetizer to Beethoven’s lyrical Fourth Piano Concerto played by Malaysian pianist Bobby Chen. Depicting Joseph Stalin and the grim Stalin years, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony nevertheless ends exuberantly and is widely considered among the best of the Russian composer’s 15 symphonies.
