Boston Symphony Explores Shostakovich’s Political Mind

April 11, 2025

As part of the Boston Symphony’s Shostakovich cycle, music director Andris Nelsons will lead Yo-Yo Ma in the composer’s politically fraught Cello Concerto on April 11. The second half of the program is Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11, written in 1957. It was subtitled The Year 1905, in reference to the so-called First Russian Revolution.
