The Radio Symphony will then be joined by one of the finest cellists of our time, Daniel Müller Schott, to perform the dark and grotesque Cello Concerto No.2, which Dmitri Shostakovich wrote for his compatriot, virtuoso Mstislav Rostropovich. Chief conductor Petr Popelka will close the evening and the season with the popular Pictures at an Exhibition by Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky in Maurice Ravel's timeless instrumentation.
