Hear music so defiant, jubilant and provocative that it could only be birthed by revolution as the New England Conservatory Philharmonia plays Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Beethoven, Wolff: Every Revolution Should Have Music This Good. Beethoven's Egmont celebrates the 16th-century Dutch nobleman who heroically opposed the despotic Duke of Alba, while Shostakovich's 1957 Symphony No. 11, subtitled The Year 1905, is a post-Stalinist look back at the Russian Revolution. Returning to Boston Symphony Hall for the first time since 2010, the polished NEC ensemble -- under the baton of world-renowned conductor Hugh Wolff -- also welcomes back award-winning alum Xiang Yu to perform Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1.

Quotes & Highlights
“The critics in Germany call him Stimmwunder (wonder voice), and it’s not hard to understand why. There is something almost superhuman about the range and technique of … Bobby McFerrin. He sounds, by turns, like a blackbird, a Martian, an operatic soprano, a small child and a be-bop trumpet.” —Newsweek
“The hyperkinetic, super personable, wide-ranging singer, scion of a family of musicians, does more than vocalize, conduct and produce music. He lives it.” —Los Angeles Times
