Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra & Valery Gergiev: Rossini and Shostakovich

Valery Gergiev and the Rotterdam Philharmonic dedicate a concert to the (perhaps surprising) parallels between Rossini and Shostakovich. On the programme: the Guillaume Tell overture by the former, and two late works – the Cello Concerto no. 1 and the Symphony no. 15 – by the latter.
