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.

The show was well done. Especially, so, as all the actors had a lot to do! They were charged with expressing many emotions over many years (their entire lifetimes) and to do so in reflection, at times, adding yet another layer of feeling. This, to make the audience intimately aware of a very ugly potential that lies within each of us. The cast showed us what that potential looked like, explicitly, when provoked to life, in familiar settings. Very well done. The only negative was, arriving 10 mins late, it took 10 mins of bell pressing, door knocking, and hel-LOWWW-ing to be admitted. I was prepared to have to wait to be seated, until intermission, if need be, but, my friend wanted to give up!
