Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Lisa Batiashvili

At this concert, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, chief conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, encounters Lisa Batiashvili – a both virtuoso and sensitive violinist, and thus the ideal interpreter of Bartók’s yearning Violin Concerto No. 1, in which the composer came to terms with an unrequited love. Following this, the orchestra performs Shostakovich’s 13th Symphony: a staggering accusation against anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union.
