The Symphony: Shostakovich

March 8, 2019
Benaroya Hall

Between Shostakovich’s precocious Symphony No. 1 and the dark, valedictory Symphony No. 15 lies a remarkably varied group of works. Together in this conversation with University of Washington Professor Emeritus Dr. Larry Starr, we’ll go beyond musical autobiography, to examine broad aspects of 20th-century life and history that left their mark on the music, and that still resonate in the complex and challenging world of today.
