Concerts on the Occasion of the 110th Birthday of Dmitri Shostakovich in Lisbon

Memorial concerts on the occasion of the 110th birthday of the Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich, who died in 1975, will be given in Lisbon on 23 and 25 September 2016, performed by the DSCH-Shostakovich Ensemble under the artistic direction of Filipe Pinto-Ribieros. At the same time, these chamber music events will be celebrating the tenth anniversary of the DSCH-Shostakovich Ensemble, and will be held at Lisbon's Centro Cultural de Belém with the participation of Filipe Pinto-Ribieros, Corey Cerovseks, Cerys Jone, Isabel Charisius and Adrian Brendel.

The programmes will include chamber works spanning Shostakovich's entire creative life, beginning with the Piano Trio No. 1 which he composed at the age of 16. Alongside the Sonata for violoncello and piano, the Piano Trio No. 2 and the Piano Quintet, there will also be a performance of the impressive Sonata for viola and piano composed shortly before the composer's death.
