JOHN AXELROD conducts this week the Symphonieorchester of the Bayerischen Rundfunks:
June 28 & 29
Barber – Adagio
Stravinsky – Chant Funébre Op. 5
Shostakovich – Symphony N. 13
As Music and Artistic Director of the Real Orquesta Sinfonica de Sevilla, John Axelrod has achieved an impressive success especially with his interpretations of Mahler, Shostakovich, Brahms and Bernstein Symphonies:
Historic Shostakovich of the ROSS
Shostakovich's interpretation of Leningrad was truly historic. Axelrod's direction proved to be very expert and intense, offering an accurate play of contrasts between the orchestral mass and more chamber music, and printing a character of expressive crescendo throughout the symphony.
