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
KODO got great Goldstar reviews at Washington’s DAR Constitution Hall.
“…the discipline of a surgeon’s scalpel with the primitive, muscular endurance of a cavalry charge. The speed and dexterity are as impressive as the physical tenacity is breathtaking.” —Chicago Tribune
Since its debut at the Berlin Festival in 1981, KODO has given over 3,300 performances on five continents and has introduced countless audiences to its peaceful, world-centered vision. The word ‘Kodo’ is a homonym for ‘heartbeat’ — humanity’s most fundamental source of rhythm — the first sound a child hears in its mother’s womb. The taiko drum, in the hands of a master drummer, has an almost astounding organic power. Feel the primal energy of KODO!
