The Queensland Symphony Orchestra presents the third instalment of its Maestro Series conducted by Eivind Aadland and featuring the works of Wagner, Strauss and Shostakovich.

Caught in the extraordinary circumstance of composing music for a government he opposed, Shostakovich was seen as both hero and propaganda tool for Stalinist Russia. Described as "confessional, disciplined and wild", Shostakovich's first Cello Concerto was written for his colleague Mstislav Rostropovich, and will be performed by one of the most recognised and applauded cellists of our time, Pieter Wispelway.
