Internationally celebrated maestro Hans Graf leads the SPCO in a rare performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 14, a powerful work written as an impassioned protest against death. Set on Russian translations of texts by Federico Garcia Lorca, Guillaume Apollinaire, Wilhelm Küchelbecker and Rainer Maria Rilke, this epic work examines human mortality with devastating emotion. This performance features the voices of SPCO debut artists Nikolay Didenko and Dina Kuznetsova. Complementing Shostakovich’s staggering work is Mozart’s sublime Paris Symphony.
