The Dissonances, 1905

Two huge contemporary Russian composers on the program
Igor Stravinsky
Violin Concerto in D major
Soloist David Grimal
Dmitry Shostakovich
Symphony No. 11, 1905
Stravinsky's Violin Concerto, written in 1931, was the beginning of a long and fruitful collaboration between the composer and the violinist Samuel Dushkin. The latter lavished on him a great deal of technical advice during the composition, and ensured its creation - even going so far as to hold a five-year exclusivity for the work. Piece of a formidable virtuosity and probably essential for any great violinist, this concerto is also a nod to the music of J.-S. Bach.
Official order for the 40th anniversary of the October Revolution, Shostakovich's Symphony No. 11 is in fact a tribute to the insurrection of 1905. On January 22 this year, a peaceful demonstration in St. Petersburg to protest against the working conditions is repressed in the blood. It is his only purely instrumental symphony, each movement of which has a title, giving it a symphonic poem. The composer, for this work, received the Lenin Prize in 1958.
