Burning passion and cool introspection meet head-on in this concert, bringing Daniil Trifonov’s Artist Portrait series to a close.

With his Concerto No 1, Shostakovich upends the traditions of the Concerto form, creating a piece that bites with wit and humour. Lurching from the pithy sarcasm of the solo trumpet to the opulence of a waltz-like theme, the piece charges through disparate moods with wicked abandon, building towards a manic, carnivalesque climax.

Beethoven’s Egmont Overture burns with the power and passion of its eponymous hero, telling the dramatic story of a freedom fighter who strives to liberate his people. The concert closes with Berlioz’s dreamlike Harold in Italy. Melancholy and pensive, the symphony brings the viola to the forefront to convey restlessness, wanderlust and the artist’s ceaseless search for inspiration.
