|Richard Strauss Don Juan
Mozart Piano Concerto No. 23 K488
Shostakovich Symphony No. 10
Shostakovich’s symphony was in part a public reaction to Stalin’s death, and in other ways an enigmatic and private work entwining personal mottos from an emotional relationship. Its dramatic power is complemented by Strauss’s brilliant tone-poem, and the sublime intimate melodies of Mozart’s concerto.
