Eduard Tubin’s 2nd Symphony “Legendary” was performed on 2 May by the Hiroshima Symphony Orchestra, conducted by its chief conductor Kazuyoshi Akiyama. Two works by Shostakovitch were also on the program: “The Golden Age” and 1st Violin Concerto. The concert was first scheduled for February but was then cancelled due to Covid. The program carried a message from Eino Tubin, who wrote: “It can be seen as a struggle between black and white, where white ultimately is victorious. Today, 85 years later, one could easily associate with the brave fight of the Ukrainians. Historical parallels can be made, giving life to legends.”
