ウェーバー・ラフマニノフ・ショスタコーヴィチ @ BPYO定期


Two of Boston’s favorite living musicians celebrated their 80th birthdays this year. Conductor Benjamin Zander ended the season leading his Youth Philharmonic Orchestra in a riveting performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10. Some people think it’s Shostakovich’s best symphony — I usually find it long-winded, and sounding too much like an imitation of Mahler. Yet Zander and his extraordinary young players made it come alive in ways I hadn’t experienced before.
