Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10 Listen Now

Two revolutionary composers, both as musicians and as humanists, are explored by Vasily Petrenko, who made a strong impression on his last BSO visit. Written after the death of Stalin, Shostakovich’s pulsing and militaristic 10th Symphony is often called an “optimistic tragedy.” Beethoven complements the work with his tumultuous, war-like Coriolan Overture and the Third Piano Concerto, performed by emerging Israeli-born New Yorker Inon Barnatan, hailed as “superb” by The New York Times, and here making his BSO debut.
