Overview

Named for the king of the gods, Mozart’s sublime final symphony, “Jupiter,” is powerful, uplifting, and transcendent. And Karen Gomyo’s virtuosic talent will be on full display in Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto. This highly personal work offers an unguarded view into Shostakovich’s private, deeply felt reserves of emotion and also requires the soloist to play virtually without pause.
