Oundjian & Shostakovich 5

After Shostakovish’s music was publicly condemned for not conforming to Soviet ideals, the Fifth Symphony was a work his life depended on—literally. The monumental feat he achieved was a critical, political, and public success, crackling with coiled-spring energy before setting loose an all-time great ending filled with resounding timpani (and, perhaps, an overtone of defiance). Mozart’s sparkling dialogue spotlights two of the TSO’s illustrious musicians. (Pictured: Peter Oundjian, TSO Conductor Emeritus)

Learn more about TSO Artist in Residence Samy Moussa, whose piece Nocturne for Orchestra appears on this program.

This concert is available in the Wednesday 1, Thursday 1, and Saturday 2 subscription series.
