Andris Nelsons and the TMC Conducting Fellows lead the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra in Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5.

Program to include:
DVOŘÁK Carnival Overture, Op. 92
COLERIDGE-TAYLOR Ballade in A minor, Op. 33
SHOSTAKOVICH Symphony No. 5

The Tanglewood Music Fellows and the TMC Conducting Fellows tackle the power and depth of Shostakovich, alongside BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons. The piece — written under the duress of a totalitarian regime — walks the line between a cry of repentance and one of rebellion. This concert is part of our exploration of the work and impact of Shostakovich.

Dmitri Shostakovich responded to threatening criticism in the Soviet press with his dramatic, triumphant Symphony No. 5, completed quickly in spring 1937 and destined for both official acceptance and long-lasting public success.

“More has been written and said about the Symphony No. 5 of Dmitri Shostakovich than about any other single symphony composed in the 20th century. The most often performed of Shostakovich’s fifteen symphonies, it has served ever since its dramatic 1937 premiere as a blank but evocative canvas upon which countless commentators have projected sharply divergent political ideologies, personal jealousies, hopes, terrors, and fantasies.”
