This performance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 4 continues the BSO and Andris Nelson's multiseason survey of the composer's complete symphonies. Shostakovich completed this dark but powerfully majestic work in 1936, but fears of official Soviet condemnation following a scathing criticism of his opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsenskled him to cancel the symphony's premiere. He instead wrote the ostensibly triumphant, widely acclaimed Fifth Symphony; the Fourth was first performed only in 1961.
Four Friday-evening concerts-one each in October, January, February, and April- are designated "Casual Fridays" this season. You are invited to wear your favorite casual attire, and to arrive early to enjoy a free, pre-concert reception before you take your seat. This lower-priced series also features a special section for Conductor Cam seating, which allows patrons to watch the conductor from the orchestra's perspective. Then, immediately after the performance, head to the post-concert reception, where, besides enjoying live music, snacks, and a cash bar, you are invited to mingle and share what you've just experienced at the BSO concert.
