Seattle Philharmonic Orchestra

Felicity James, violin (2014 Don Bushell Competition winner)

Shostakovich – Hamlet, Op. 116 (incidental music to Kozinstev’s film)
Saint-Saëns – Concerto No. 3 in b for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 61
Stravinsky – Petrouchka (original 1911 version)

In a concert focusing on the world of theater, Russian-born masters Dmitri Shostakovich and Igor Stravinsky remind us why their music is forever gripping and appealing. Shostakovich’s score for the Russian film version of Hamlet is music of almost unbearable drama, and Stravinsky’s ever-popular ballet Petrouchka is presented here in its original opulent scoring. SPO Don Bushell Competition winner Felicity James is featured in Saint-Saëns’ lyrical Violin Concerto No. 3.
