Bernstein // Slava! A Political Overture
Bernstein // Symphony No. 2, "The Age of Anxiety" Listen Now
Shostakovich // Symphony No. 5 in D Minor Listen Now

The BSO’s season culminates witha duo of transformative composers.  Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, celebrated in its time by both repressed audiences and officials alike, is a stunning example of the symphony as artistic salvation.  Bernstein’s Slava! and “The Age of Anxiety” use art to cultivate poignant messages that resonate throughout time.
