Written in just three days, Shostakovich’s Festive Overture is full of bombast and glittering orchestral sounds, from its blazing fanfare to the sparkling melodies dashing across the orchestra. Another Russian classic, but in an entirely different mood, is Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2, full of enigmatic twists and turns. Composed to commemorate the late Ju-yung Chung, Jeajoon Ryu’s intense and powerful Sinfonia da Requiem was hailed by fellow-composer Penderecki as ‘a masterpiece’.
