About This Event

This season Andris Nelsons and the BSO perform the final two symphonies in their multi-year survey of Shostakovich's work: Symphony No. 3 in January and, this week, No. 13, Babi Yar (1962). Featuring Russian bass Ildar Abdrazakov as soloist, the symphony's settings of texts by Yevgeny Yevtushenko include the title poem, a pointed condemnation of anti-Semitism named for a Ukrainian ravine where thousands of Jews perished during World War II. Opening the program is the third BSO co-commissioned work by one of the most important living composers, Sofia Gubaidulina, who as a student was strongly encouraged by Shostakovich.
