Boston Symphony Orchestra

Carnegie Hall - New York City, NY - View Map

Shostakovich's colossal Leningrad Symphony honors the composer's native city and its heroism during the 900-day siege it suffered during World War II. While the work does not have a program, visions of war, mechanized invaders, and ultimate victory are conjured with striking power. There's also the premiere of a new work from legendary Russian composer Sofia Gubaidulina that's part of Carnegie Hall's ongoing 125 Commissions Project.
