Andris Nelsons conducts Shostakovich Symphony No. 4

Presented by Boston Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Hall, Boston MA

Apr 06 2018
Andris Nelsons conducts Shostakovich Symphony No. 4

BSO Music Director conducts Shostakovich Symphony No. 4 program

This performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4 continues the BSO and Andris Nelson's multiseason survey of the composer's complete symphonies. Shostakovich completed this dark but powerfully majestic work in 1936, but fears of official Soviet condemnation following a scathing criticism of his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsenskled him to cancel the symphony's premiere. He instead wrote the ostensibly triumphant, widely acclaimed Fifth Symphony; the Fourth was first performed only in 1961. View more
