Prokofjev Overture on Hebrew Themes, op. 34b

Sjostakovitsj  Cello Concerto No. 1, op. 107   

van Beethoven Symphony No. 8, op. 93

“Beethoven’s music gets to the very heart of things. It is all or nothing. Life or death.” These past few seasons, Kristiina Poska has become even more devoted to the composer’s music. Frolicsome, ironic and often irresistibly impish: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 delights in leading listeners’ astray. Shostakovich’s cello concerto too mocks through music, but with a more cutting edge to it. Cellist Johannes Moser’s rendition is both precise and spirited, all pleading and grumbling punches.
