Concert Program

Symphonies of Mahler and Shostakovich

Event Info

The 20th-century Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich saw himself as the spiritual successor of the Austrian Jewish composer Gustav Mahler. Mahler, and Shostakovich after him, thought of the symphony as a means for expression using every tool available. In the wide-ranging symphonies they composed, the listener encounters landscapes of sound, full of inspiration and imagination. Which events in the composers’ lives, in the landscapes of their childhood, in the historical era in which they lived, together with their creative personalities, led to the orchestral wonders they gave us?

Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony will be performed in January 2018; works by Mahler will be performed in January and March 2018

This lecture will be in Hebrew
