Suppé Overture to Pique Dame
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1
Shostakovich Symphony No. 5
Deniz Şensoy violin
James Blair conductor
Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra
The third concert of YMSO’s 2023-24 season begins with the captivating Pique Dame Overture by master of light opera Franz von Suppé. The Orchestra is then joined by Turkish violinist Deniz Şensoy in Bruch’s beloved Violin Concerto.
The concert concludes with Shostakovich’s tumultuous Fifth Symphony, a piece written at a time when the composer was out of favour with the authorities. The last movement, although triumphant, reflects Shostakovich’s disdain for a regime that was unable to detect the hollowness and despair behind the bombast of the finale.
The Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra brings together outstanding young players from across the UK, who are on the threshold of their orchestral careers. Every professional orchestra in the UK contains alumni of YMSO, many of whom are section principals.
