Many people think that I came back to life after the Fifth Symphony. No, I came back to life after the Seventh.

Shostakovich

Why See New York Philharmonic - Jaap Van Zweden conducts Shostakovich?

ClassicalConcerts

One of the repertoire's longest works, Shostakovich's monumental seventh symphony, known as the Leningrad Symphony, is an unforgettable expression of resistance in the face of war, composed as it was during the Nazi occupation of the pieces namesake city. Seen as a tribute to human triumph over the regime, it is a moving testament to those who lost their lives fighting for a better tomorrow that proves an unforgettable experience for the listener.

Also, the evening will commence with Britten's poignant Violin Concerto as performed by Simone Lamsma. Ripe with beauty and touching melodies, it is the perfect prologue to what will likely be a throughly heart-rending night at the David Geffen Hall.

Expertly acted, pleasingly sung, and often visually splendid, it makes a good faith attempt to honor the show's history and intentions while also acknowledging the charged sexual politics of the moment
