Shostakovich on New York Phil

Dmitri Shostakovich

Thursday’s broadcast of the New York Philharmonic This Week offers variety: Beethoven, a composer who goes with just about anything; Shostakovich—now that’s a program with some muscle; then a composer who isn’t usually paired with the other two, the ever-tuneful George Gershwin. It’s all great music, which is what’s most important. The violin soloist for the Shostakovich First Violin Concerto is the young Georgian Lisa Batiashvili.
