Music skillfully narrates both happiness and tragedy in a concert surely not to be missed. The primal nature of love is explored through the lush and evocative Prelude and Liebestod (Love-Death) by Richard Wagner. A cornerstone in the repertoire, cellist Rachel Mercer performs Schumann’s posthumously popular Cello Concerto in A minor that was written in a brief optimistic state during the composer’s tempestuous life. Symphony No. 10 by Shostakovich, controversially theorized as an allegory of the life and times of Stalin, is a mighty musical portrait of bitter lyricism and dynamic frenzy.
