"Midori's playing is imbued not just with a keen beauty but somehow with a thoughtfulness." London Sunday Times

SCHUMANN Violin Concerto in D Minor, WoO 23
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93

Superstar violinist Midori returns to partner Okko Kamu and the SSO for Schumann's Violin Concerto, a lesser known work described bythe legendary Yehudi Menuhin as "the bridge between the Beethoven and the Brahms concertos". As a composer under the Stalin regime, Shostakovich found himself constantly under scrutiny and attack; the Tenth Symphony was one of the important works he wrote following Stalin's death in 1953.
