Delta David Gier, conductor
My Symphonies are Tombstones
Using dramatic readings and musical excerpts, the SDSO, Maestro Gier, and Joseph Horowitz – award winning expert on music and history – bring you inside the mind and times of Dmitri Shostakovich. Then brace yourself for a thrilling performance of the “Leningrad” Symphony.
Shostakovich / Symphony No. 7
Shostakovich wrote his massive Symphony No. 7 during the siege of Leningrad. “Neither savage raids…nor the grim atmosphere of the beleaguered city could hinder the flow. I worked with an inhuman intensity I have never before reached.” Dmitri Shostakovich
