Returning after a successful debut in the 2015-16 season, young conductor Krzysztof Urbański, hailed as “remarkable” and “gorgeously expressive” (San Francisco Chronicle), conducts Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto performed by Augustin Hadelich. The program continues with Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony, which the composer completed just one year after Stalin’s death. This orchestral showpiece culminates in a celebratory march representing victory over an oppressive regime.
