[MUSIC -DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH,
"SYMPHONY NO.

10"]

SUBJECT 1: The opening of
Shostakovich 10 is this really

sparse, barren texture that can
be a walk through of the

Russian countryside in winter,
I think, and really also

convey some sort of the
loneliness and existential

angst of being in some sort
of a totalitarian society.

[MUSIC -DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH,
"SYMPHONY NO.

10"]


KATE DREYFUSS: Shostakovich's
10th symphony is a thrilling

piece of music.

The opening of the second
movement is explosive and

requires a very intense
amount of

concentration from the orchestra.

[MUSIC -DMITRI SHOSTAKOVICH,
"SYMPHONY NO.

MICHAEL PRATT: So when you look
across this sea of faces

of these young people playing
with such commitment and such

passion and such obvious
excitement and love it awakens

something special
in the audience.
