New Jersey’s Plainfield Symphony Orchestra will perform an all-Shostakovich concert on March 10, featuring a symphony and violin concerto by the composer, led by Music Director Charles Prince. Evelyn Estava, the orchestra’s concertmaster, will be soloist in the four-movement Violin Concerto No. 1, which was originally performed in Russia by the Leningrad Philharmonic in 1955 with soloist David Oistrakh. Also on the program will be Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9. The Plainfield Symphony, a community orchestra founded in 1919, performs five concerts per season; the final 2017-18 season concert on April 28 will feature Mahler’s Symphony No. 9.
