Civic Orchestra: Shostakovitch 10
Tuesday, June 2, 2020 8:00 PM
Shostakovich’s Symphony no. 10 displays the composer’s full emotional range, from the dark, brooding first movement, to the sharp, sarcastic scherzos. This work is accompanied by Thomas Ades’s work from 1997, featuring athletic percussion elements inspired by the hypnotic repetition of techno music.
