Warwick Potter conducts The University of Queensland Symphony Orchestra in a program celebrating two musically political giants of the twentieth century. Stefanos Melas is the violin soloist in Bernstein's Serenade: After Plato's Symposium. Lenny and Dmitri: Cold War Titans will conclude with Shostakovich's epic tenth symphony, one of the most profound musical statements of the last century.
A pre-concert talk will occur before the performance on Sunday, 21 October with Vincent Plush. In this talk, Vincent Plush discusses the ardent background behind Bernstein’s only violin concerto, his Serenade.
