Of Note for Tuesday, March 24: Shcendrin's Concerto Cantabile


Rodion Shchedrin's description of cantabile is "to express firstly a certain tension in the 'soul' of the notes, and also the manner in which they are produced. The term also refers to the juxtaposition, interweaving, conflict and resolution of the soloist's singing lines against the orchestra." Hear the fascinating work performed by Maxim Vengerov, violin, and the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mstislav Rostropovich on Tuesday's program.
