In the organizer's words:
"Rock 'n' Roll & Revolution"Hilary Hahn | National Symphony Orchestra Washington | Gianandrea Noseda: Berg | Korngold | Shostakovich

"Quasi rock 'n' roll" is the final movement of Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Violin Concerto, Hilary Hahn enthuses. And perhaps Korngold was indeed a rock 'n' roller at heart? For just as rock 'n' roll revolutionized dance music in the 1950s, Korngold revolutionized the still young film music in Hollywood in the 1930s. The fact that Dmitri Shostakovich was also capable of revolution was already proven by his inventive first symphony - in the Fifth, however, he felt compelled to exercise restraint. At the height of Stalinist terror, Shostakovich created a work that, with its heroic gesture and triumphant ending, satisfied even the most critical censor.
