SHOSTAKOVICH SYMPHONY NO. 5
NJSO Concertmaster Eric Wyrick steps into the spotlight with Strauss’ heartfelt and inventive violin concerto, an early work by the acclaimed master. Romantic-era composer Goldmark’s carefree overture promises to be a delightful discovery, while Shostakovich’s stirring Fifth mingles tragedy and triumph in an unforgettable creation.
