Michelle Cann performs Mozart’s refined, radiant Piano Concerto No. 23 with former Seattle Symphony Conducting Fellow Lina González-Granados. Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony was written to satisfy Stalin’s regime, yet within the complex beauty, forceful sonorities and triumphant conclusion, the true voice of the artist cannot be denied. Nina Shekhar’s Lumina explores the spectrum of light and dark.
