Dima Slobodeniouk and Baiba Skride

This programme of music from north-eastern Europe is wonderfully austere, at times melancholy, at times brutal. We hear the mythical sounds of Jean Sibelius’s tone poem Tapiola, the industrial power of Sergei Prokofiev’s Second Symphony and Dmitri Shostakovich’s Second Violin Concerto, which alternates between passion and disenchanted sadness. Dima Slobodeniouk makes his conducting debut with the orchestra; the violin soloist is Baiba Skride.
