Canellakis Conducts Shostakovich

Part of Women in Music at Southbank Centre

A feted emerging conductor appears with the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Shortly after Karina Canellakis made her LPO debut in 2018, the UK’s music critics voted to give her their Emerging Talent award: declaring her ‘one of the most dynamic young conductors on the international circuit’.

But don’t just take their word for it.

Hear for yourself tonight as she scales the peaks of Shostakovich’s stirring Fifth Symphony – a coded counterblast to Stalin’s censorship – and partners violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann in Schumann’s dark horse of a Violin Concerto.

A work from the orchestra’s Composer in Residence, Brett Dean, launches the evening: as ever, the only thing that can be predicted is that it’ll be brilliantly unpredictable.
