Bartók’s thrilling concerto justifies its fanciful title by placing the entire orchestra in the spotlight. With this bold and witty music, the artists of the TSO demonstrate everything they are capable of. Alisa Weilerstein, one of today’s most talented cellists, lays bare the soul of a late and lean Shostakovich masterwork, and TSO favourite Thomas Dausgaard brings the expressive prelude to fellow Dane Rued Langgaard’s 1920s opera, Antikrist.

Concert running time is approximately two hours including a 20-minute intermission.
