Led by Grant Llewellyn, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 is a journey of haunting melodies, shocking climaxes, charming elegance, and joyful abandon. Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1—a wild ride with a nearly nonstop solo line—is performed by the impeccable violinist James Ehnes, a two-time 2019 Grammy Award winner.
