Description: Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13, titled Babi Yar, memorializes the massacre of Ukrainian Jews by Nazi forces. The work remains one of the most enduring musical protests against antisemitism. An engaging and informative preview lecture by three scholars and the conductor will precede the concert and explore the historical context of the Holocaust and the artistic reaction and remembrance generated by Shostakovich’s symphony. The work is paired with selections from I Never Saw Another Butterfly by
Charles Davidson, settings of poems by Jewish children who perished in the Holocaust. © 2013-2020 East Lansing Info
