Serenade

Tickets: 37.00-7.00 €

Introduction

What is love? A divine force, a fountain of youth or the highest manifestation of the virtuous life? Leonard Bernstein’s Serenade draws inspiration from Plato's Symposium, a dialogue between violin and orchestra of related statements in praise of love. Shostakovich’s last symphony reflects on the joys and sorrows of life looking back from the gates of death. Violinist Baiba Skride once again teams up with conductor John Storgårds and the HPO.
