Dmitri Shostakovich’s ebullient Festive Overture opens this concert of works by Eastern European composers. At the center of the program are Alexander Arutiunian’s Concerto for Trumpet and Stanisław Skrowaczewski’s masterful Music for Winds. Shostakovich’s brooding Prelude in E-flat Minor, Op. 34, No. 14 and Prokofiev’s bright March, Op. 99 offer contrasting moods of the former Soviet Union.
