Essen Philharmonie


  • Mussorgsky (orch. Shostakovich) Dawn on the Moscow River (Prelude to Khovanshchina)
  • Shostakovich Violin Concerto No. 1
  • Brahms Symphony No. 4


  • Karina Canellakis conductor
  • Christian Tetzlaff violin

Canellakis conducts Brahms's fearless Fourth Symphony.

Do not go gentle into that good night: Brahms’s last symphony begins softly, but as he approaches the end of a lifetime’s struggle, he strides fearlessly into the raging storm. This is music that pulses with melody and emotion; as is Shostakovich’s explosive First Violin Concerto, which will be brought to life tonight by the renowned violinist Christian Tetzlaff.
