Shostakovich’s 5th

Howard Performing Arts Center 4160 E Campus Cir Dr, Berrien Springs, MI

The SMSO recognizes musicians that create great art in the midst of darkness. American composer Jennifer Higdon’s blue cathedral is a memorial to her younger brother. Pianist and Gilmore Young Artist Maxim Lando performs Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, a work that takes inspiration from the Dies Irae or "Day of Wrath". Shostakovich faced censorship under Soviet rule but managed to triumph with his 5th Symphony.
