    Korngold’s captivating Violin Concerto is an intoxicating combination of Hollywood accessibility, rigorous virtuosity, and unabashed romanticism. Shostakovich’s Eighth Symphony, considered one of the composer’s finest, is a requiem for the millions who suffered and died during WWII and under the Stalinist regime.
