Shostakovich wrote his Cello Concerto No. 1 for his close friend Mstislav Rostropovich, the famous virtuoso and Soviet dissident. In the hands of ASO Principal Cello Rainer Eudeikis, audiences will be able to hear the brilliance of both composer and muse all the way to the fiery conclusion.

With a nod to William Shakespeare, Alexander Soddy conducts Anna Clyne's Sound and Fury, a recent work inspired by Haydn. Also on the program, Elgar's much loved Enigma Variations, a set of musical portraits — love letters, really — to the people in the composer's life.
