Gil Shaham returns to join the SSO and Lan Shui for Bright Sheng's Violin Concerto, a work commissioned by the SSO and specially written for the soloist. Strauss' Ein Heldenleben ("A Hero's Life") is a masterpiece of characterisation in which the heroic subject is the composer himself, with other vivid portraits including snide music critics as well as Strauss' own wife, Pauline.
