Dmitri Shostakovich
Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and String Orchestra in C minor Op. 35

Shostakovich, Ustvolskaya, Ligeti––each of these composers poses riddles to their audiences. Alexander Melnikov, Jeroen Berwaerts, and the Ensemble Resonanz constrast Ustvolskaya’s harsh, spiritual sound world with the satirical ambiguity of her teacher Dmitri Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto. Completing the program are three absurd-farcical episodes from György Ligeti’s towering music theater work Le Grand Macabre.
