About This Performance

The blazing brass in Shostakovich’s famous Fifth is only one of the reasons that it is his most popular symphony. Another is the finale, which raises your heart rate several beats with its inexorable intensity.

Gregarious Bowl favorite Bramwell Tovey says of his new jazz-tinged trumpet concerto: “…the dialog that the trumpet has is like the conversations that people have in a pub.”

Come for:

An extravaganza of brass.

And more:

Charismatic British trumpeter Alison Balsom, Gramophone Artist of the Year, in Tovey’s whimsically titled concerto.
