Tchaikovsky’s evocative Cappriccio Italien is a musical travelogue painting the landscape of the composer’s journey to Rome. Pianist Dong Xu returns to the limelight to perform a stunning rare work for the left hand alone: Piano Concerto No. 4 by Sergei Prokofiev. From seemingly inconsequential playful musical quotes to deeply profound phrases, Shostakovich’s ultimate Symphony No. 15 embodies a range of musical emotion analogous to the composer and his life.
