Robertson Conducts Shostakovich and Beethoven

Why You'll Love This Concert

“I have invited cellist Doniyor Zuparov to open my final season with one of the most difficult pieces ever written for the instrument, and I promise that you will be stunned by his artistry. Juxtaposing Beethoven's playful 8th Symphony against the intensity of Shostakovich's virtuoso showpiece sets the perfect tone to open our season.” - Jon Robertson
