Shostakovich Symphony No. 9

Wharton Center for Performing Arts

Please join Lansing Symphony Orchestra for our MasterWorks 4 performance featuring Shostakovich’s “Symphony No. 9”! Hye-Jin Kim and East Lansing native Ara Gregorian, a husband-and-wife duo, will also take the stage for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s joyous and tuneful "Sinfonia Concertante". Shostakovich wrote his "Symphony No. 9" at the conclusion of World War 2, and audiences were expecting something epic. What he gave them instead was a work of Mozartian proportions, but pure Shostakovich in its wit, sparkle, and complex emotional landscape.
