Andris Nelsons conducts Beethoven and Shostakovich with Mitsuko Uchida, piano

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Japanese pianist Mitsuko Uchida joins Andris Nelsons and the BSO for Ludwig van Beethoven’s monumental Emperor piano concerto. Criticism in the Soviet press of Dmitri Shostakovich’s opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District put him in a precarious position with Soviet authorities. His response was the powerful and outwardly triumphant Fifth Symphony.
