APRIL | O’ROURKE’S PEAK CELLARS MASTERWORKS V
APRIL 5, 6, 7
Lara St. John, violin
Back by popular demand, Lara St. John returns to light up our stage in Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, one of the most exhilarating concertos written for the violin. Lara studied this work in Moscow and her indescribable energy will blaze through this tour de force. Both Shostakovich’s Concerto and the Festive Overture show off this Russian master at his most resplendent. We pair these works with Stravinsky’s well-loved Firebird Suite for a musical evening of colour and radiance.
