In January 2016, Maestro Rozhdestvensky was awarded the orchestra's International Shostakovich Prize, in recognition of the Maestro's lifelong connection with the work of Dmitri Shostakovich.

This month he opens the 8th International Shostakovich Festival by conducting the composer's first and last symphonies at the Semperoper Dresden.

Viktoria Postnikova also performs the first concert in a series of chamber recitals in Gohrisch, alongside principal players of the Dresden Staatskapelle.
