Part of Symphonic – An Orchestral and Choral Series.

Eivind Aadland is one of Scandinavia’s most respected conductors and his recordings of the complete orchestral works of Grieg are seen as definitive. Australia will soon see more of him as he takes on the role of chief conductor with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra in 2020, but you can experience his work at Monash when he conducts the powerful fifth symphony of Shostakovich.

Arguably the greatest of the composer’s fifteen; its chilly, brooding opening has become a kind of musical symbol of life under Stalin, while the slow movement contains some of the most terrifyingly lonely music ever written. At other times sarcasm, whether blatant or cryptic, is pervasive. In the first half of the concert, the dynamic Monash Sinfonia will present a selection of works for string orchestra.
