Sheng Cai (SQ)

Inspired by the sixteenth century fresco by Raphael, Hindemith paints his own endearing musical picture depicting the myth of Amor and Psyché. Dedicated and first performed by his son on his nineteenth birthday, Shostakovich’s Piano Concerto no. 2 is a joyful work filled with youthful vitality and the romance of the prior century brought to life by acclaimed pianist Sheng Cai. Written during the years after the Second World War, Prokofiev‘s Symphony No. 6 is a tragically ominous reflection of society and the composer’s own inner turmoil.
