Overview

Premiered in 1953 after the death of Joseph Stalin, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony bursts with menacing march rhythms, chilling whispers and triumphal defiance. The music is often heard as a reckoning with the brutalities of Stalinism but also as the composer’s sigh of relief. Rossen Milanov conducts this thrilling program, which also features Sarah Kirkland Snider’s Something for the Dark, a bold and colorful meditation on resilience.
