Composer: Weber, Shostakovich, Bach, Dvorák

Tokyo’s Suntory Hall is alive to a programme of particular musical energy − sometimes overt and joyous, sometimes suppressed and intense. Jansons’ fidelity to music composed during the Soviet era remains heartfelt: Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1, featuring soloist Hilary Hahn, is rendered with poise, elegance and demoniac vigour. This piece is framed by two sprightly works: Weber’s charming, zesty Overture to Oberon and Dvorák’s Eighth Symphony, executed with Bohemian-esque lyricism and verve.

Recorded live at the Suntory Hall, Tokyo, 26 November 2000. Directed by Shoichi Nishikawa. This special edition in a slipcase includes the complete EuroArts and Idéale Audience DVD & Blu-ray Disc Catalogue. Cover artwork featuring the Berlin based German graphic artist Hanna Hennenkemper.
