Shostakovich: Symphony No. 9

February 5 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm

As World War II ended, Soviet composers were expected to produce bombastic music proclaiming victory, but Shostakovich hesitated. In these dark hours, under a regime of control, he instead gave voice to light – in the bright and brief Symphony No. 9. Accompanied by Richard Strauss’ contemporaneous 1945 string masterpiece and Copland’s haunting score, this is a program of expectations defied and beauty found in the strangest places.
