Schumann, Mozart & Shostakovich’s First Symphony
Hilbert Circle Theatre
Acclaimed violinist Francesca Dego joins the ISO for this delightful program led by conductor Asher Fisch. Robert Schumann’s Overture, inspired by Lord Byron’s dramatic poem Manfred, displays Byron’s restless passion. Violin Concerto No. 5, written when Mozart was 19 years old in 1775, captures the era’s rage for the exotic with elements of “Turkish” music in the finale, while Shostakovich’s First Symphony, completed before he turned 19, brought him world renown.
