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.

A magnificent experience! Barenboim's conducting is magical and the musicians excellent. Absolutely the best musical event I have attended in Boston. The music stays in your heart and the mission it endeavors to accomplish can cause change.
