Goodyear Plays Shostakovich

Goodyear Plays Shostakovich, April 4, 2022.

The gifted Canadian pianist, Stewart Goodyear, has had a long and fruitful relationship with the Victoria Symphony. For this next collaboration with VS, he and music director Christian Kluxen offer an intriguing program including music by Barber, R. Strauss and Mozart that culminates in a performance of Shostakovich’s light-hearted and charming Piano Concerto No. 2. Written in 1957, four years after the death of Stalin. This work almost stands alone in Shostakovich’s output in its unrestrained joy and exuberance.
