Chicago Symphony Orchestra: Shostakovich

Sunday, Jun 8 3:00p

Whether a well-calculated concession to Stalin's cultural watchdogs or a magnificent act of subversion and defiance, there is no mistaking the power of Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony, from its vigorously vaulting opening theme through to its heart-felt slow movement. Written not long afterwards, Britten's Violin Concerto, blending wistful lyricism and stunning virtuosity, powerfully moves and thrills audiences wherever it is performed.
