Shostakovich Symphony No. 12

Fri Oct 18 — Sat Oct 19, 2024

Orchestra Hall

~2 hours, including intermission

Words are a powerful influence in this program with Zhou Tian looking to Chinese poetry for inspiration and the well-read Leonard Bernstein to W. H. Auden. In his Symphony No. 12, Dmitri Shostakovich captures the spirit of a revolution. A reminder: when it comes to Shostakovich, the Minnesota Orchestra leaves nothing in the tank.
