Mariss Jansons and Truls Mørk

Dmitri Shostakovich reflects unsparingly on the horrors of the Stalin era with his Tenth Symphony. Specifically, the manic brutal second movement was conceived as a portrait of the dictator. The work is conducted at this concert by Mariss Jansons, whose musical origins were in the renowned Leningrad Shostakovich tradition; he was considered one of the best Shostakovich interpreters. We encounter soloist Truls Mørk in Henri Dutilleux’s yearning cello concerto.
