Shostakovich's Hidden Themes
Marin Alsop, Music Director
Jon Kimura Parker, piano
Bernstein // Slava! A Political Overture
Bernstein // Symphony No. 2, "The Age of Anxiety"
Shostakovich // Symphony No. 5 in D Minor
The BSO’s season culminates witha duo of transformative composers. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, celebrated in its time by both repressed audiences and officials alike, is a stunning example of the symphony as artistic salvation. Bernstein’s Slava! and “The Age of Anxiety” use art to cultivate poignant messages that resonate throughout time.
