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.

Seats were fine, all the way back in the orchestra at the Schubert, under an overhang- but fine for a concert. Much as my wife and I like Gordon Lightfoot's original songs and music, unfortunately his voice is basically gone. He can't hit the higher notes or hold a note long. In fact, I didn't recognize the voice as being the same as the one from the recordings we own.
To his credit, he did sing many songs and put on a professional performance.
I understand he had a near-death health emergency over 10 years ago, so, sadly, maybe that effected his voice.
