Event Description

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 the Kindred Spirits Orchestra’s own concertmaster, Jing Ye, on violin. Grammy-nominated composer and flutist Ron Korb performs Taiwanese composer Ma Shui-long’s thrilling Bamboo Flute Concerto. The bloodbath of “The Year 1905” in Russia’s revolutionary past is masterfully illustrated in Shostakovich’s fierce and impassioned Symphony No. 11.
