"If one function of art is to make us ponder difficult questions, there could not be a more potent example than Shostakovich's 13th" (The Guardian). Zell Music Director Riccardo Muti opens a season of reflection with Shostakovich's gripping setting of poetry by Yevgeny Yevtushenko condemning anti-Semitism and the barbarous acts that took place near Kiev in September 1941.
