The NBSO is back with another fantastic virtual concert! Join us on November 21 as we safely place 22 musicians (strings and trumpet), Music Director Yaniv Dinur, and guest pianist Alexander Korsantia on stage at The Z for a fantastic virtual performance of Shostakovich’s Concerto for Piano, Trumpet, and String Orchestra and 

Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings.Shostakovich’s first Piano Concerto is written for the unusual instrumentation of piano, strings, and trumpet and spans musical styles. Georgian pianist Alexander Korsantia, winner of the 1995 Arthur Rubinstein Competition, joins the NBSO for this masterpiece, and NBSO Principal Trumpet Andrew Sorg is the featured solo trumpet. Dvořák's Serenade for Strings, really a symphony for string orchestra, remains one of Dvořák's most popular works and one of the pinnacles of romantic music.To learn more about the concert music and the musicians, watch our 3 To Get Ready videos that will be posted the week of the concert on under the Events / Online Concerts tab.
