Music of the generations

It is his greatest joy as an artist »to bring music to life«, says Maxim Vengerov. One of his most important sources of inspiration was Mstislav Rostropovich, whom he commemorates with his interpretation of Sergei Prokofiev's lyrical First Violin Concerto: »He introduced me to Shostakovich and Prokofiev [...]. Whenever I play [their music], I have a direct connection to them through [him]. They were his musical fathers and he was mine«. At the beginning of the concert, Grażyna Bacewicz's breathtaking »Music for Strings, Trumpet and Percussion« will be heard. With it, the Polish composer overcame the neoclassicism of her famous teacher Nadia Boulanger in 1958. And principal conductor Marin Alsop also continues to explore the oeuvre of her former mentor, conducting Leonard Bernstein's »Jeremiah« Symphony, with Israeli mezzo-soprano Rinat Shaham as soloist.
