Notes & Reviews:

The Mahler Chamber Orchestra was Orchestra in Residence at the 2013 Belgium KlaraFestival; their concerts formed one of the highlights of the year's festival. Alongside young Greece conductor Teodor Currentzis, hailed as an "eccentric super-talented maestro", the orchestra dedicated its performance to Benjamin Britten and Dmitri Shostakovich - composers, contemporaries and friends. The program included Britten's Sinfonietta as well as Shostakovich's First Symphony and his Cello Concerto No.1, at whose 1960 London world premiere the two composers first met.
