ADAMS, BEETHOVEN, SHOSTAKOVICH
Although Shostakovich’s works were suppressed at times, he was the most popular and best Russian composer of his generation. Celebrated, but also condemned and persecuted, he spent all of his life in the Soviet Union, fighting for the freedom of creating. Following the much-acclaimed performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11 in the year 2016, the Rijeka Theatre continues the tradition of performing compositions that with their simplicity and power induce a strong emotional response.
Programme: Ludwig van Beethoven: Concert for piano and orchestra no. 4 u G-major
