Boston Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Beethoven’s Violin Concerto set the standard for the great violin concertos of the Romantic era. Longer in duration, more richly orchestrated and featuring a solo part more difficult than anything that came before, it’s quintessential Beethoven. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10, popularly believed to be a musical depiction of the horrors of the Stalin era, is a scorching, tragic masterpiece featuring a terrifying march thought to be a portrait of the Soviet dictator.
