Korngold & Shostakovich

Sunday, January 14, 2018

2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Beethoven: Overture to Leonore No. 3
Korngold: Violin Concerto
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5

This afternoon Kingston Symphony concert includes a trio of magnificent works by composers who were looking for a slice of redemption. Beethoven slaved over his revisions to his only opera to get it just so; Korngold wrote his lyrical Violin Concerto in an effort to return to ‘serious’ composition; and at great personal risk, Shostakovich presented his stunning Fifth Symphony in the face of Soviet censorship.

Tickets range in price from $10 – $50 and can be purchased by calling the Grand Theatre Box Office at 613-530-2050 or visiting
