Lenin once stated, ” Every artist, everyone who considers himself an artist, has the right to create freely according to his ideal, independently of everything. However, we are Communists and we must not stand with folded hands and let chaos develop as it pleases. We must systemically guide this process and form its result,” and it is in this world of Soviet government imposed art standards that some of the 20th century’s most gifted composers were forced to work or flee their homes. Join Raymond Chobaz and the OSO as we study and perform three incredible works created while walking the tight rope of this harrowing period in history.
Colas Breugnon Overture – Dmitry Kabalevsky
Violin Concerto – Aram Khachaturian
Symphony No. 6 – Dmitri Shostakovich
