Denève Conducts Shostakovich
Artists fly close to the sun. Jean-Yves Thibaudet, in his final appearance as Artist-in-Residence, miraculously performs two-handed virtuosity with just one hand. Shostakovich, at risk in Soviet Russia, pours his rebellious spirit into the Tenth Symphony. “The desire to go beyond the boundaries is essentially human,” writes composer Lera Auerbach.
