Shostakovich Symphony No. 9

MW4
Wharton Center for Performing Arts

Hye-Jin Kim and East Lansing native Ara Gregorian, a husband-and-wife duo, will 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.
