Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse. Mozart, Shostakovitch

Live on medici.tv, the Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse opens its season in great start with its music director Tugan Sokhiev and the great piano master Menahem Pressler.

After the triumph of the first season of collaboration between the Orchestre de Toulouse and medici.tv, who broadcast eight concerts with a rich program bringing together Bertrand Chamayou, Olga Borodina, Renaud Capuçon, Jean-Yves Thibaudet and Antoine Tamestit, the 2012-2013 season begins wonderfully with a Mozart/Shostakovich concert, conducted by the great Tugan Sokhiev.

Recognized as a piano superstar, Menahem Pressler gives the 17th Piano Concerto by one of his favorite composers: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. In the second part of the program, the musicians from Toulouse and Tugan Sokhiev perform the Symphony No. 5 by Shostakovich, a powerful work created by Mravinsky in 1937.
