From the most woeful and sinister themes emerge the most moving melodies. Camille Saint-Saëns’ energetically haunting Danse Macabre evokes the Devil in music, featuring acclaimed violinist Jing Ye. Pianist Gregory Millar brings prowess to another work by the French master Saint-Saëns: his melodious and artfully composed Piano Concerto No. 4. The bloodbath of “The Year 1905” in Russia’s revolutionary past is masterfully illustrated in Shostakovich’s fierce and impassioned Symphony No. 11.
