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.

It turned out to be a very moving evening. I realized in the past 3-4 years that I had lost some hearing. I went throught surgery and got equipped with a hearing aid. In the middle of the performance it occurred to me this was a reason I fought to keep my hearing. It felt like my ears were treated to every sound, pitch, tone the human ear can encounter. Many times during the show I just put my head down and listened. It was a revealation. I thanked as many of the members of the chorale as I could before I left. I cannot imagine my life without the ability to take in the beauty of what the human voice can achieve.

The Manhattan Chorale was superlative; the selections, the musical performance, and the sound inside the church. It was also the first time that the performers were at the door greeting the guests and thanking them as we left. Awesome!
