Giuseppe Martucci
Symphony No. 1 in d minor op. 75

In Jewish folk music, Dmitri Shostakovich found sounds after his own heart. With its laughing-through-tears and its pain transmogrified into gaiety, this music was a perfect complement to life under Stalinism. And this also brings us to Shostakovich’s great First Violin Concerto – with sparkling virtuosity, capricious grotesques and enforced merriment. Sergei Dogadin follows in the footsteps of the dedicatee David Oistrach. But at the opening of the concert is a village fair set to music by Michail Glinka – and at the end, conductor Riccardo Frizza goes to bat for Guiseppe Martucci and the First Symphony he wrote in 1895: a beguilingly Latin-flavoured variant of German Romanticism.
