The Philadelphia Orchestra -- Beethoven and Shostakovich

Thursday, Mar 6 8:00p
Kimmel Center Philadelphia, PA

Once again this season, Beethoven’s music is juxtaposed with the great symphonic master of the 20th century, Shostakovich. The Tenth Symphony was his first symphonic work in eight years. On the surface, it contains Shostakovich’s soaring melodies and strident harmonies. Underneath, the composer has included a bombastic and ironic portrait of Stalin in the second movement, a hidden message to secret love in the third, and encoded his own initials in the final movement.
