The OSM and James Ehnes: From Darkness to Light


Whether sprightly or spiritual, the OSM strings summon a captivating journey! Canadian violinist James Ehnes and OSM Concertmaster Andrew Wan alternately play and conduct the ensemble in a program that features Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony, a work of tragic depth echoing the many conflicts of the 20th century. Bach’s elegant, robust Violin Concerto BWV 1052R rekindles the flames of hope, while Vaughan Williams transforms them into pure light with overflowingly rich harmonies in his Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis.
