About

November 2017: a century ago, according to the Julian calendar used in Russia at the time, Lenin took advantage of the fall of Tsar Nicolas II to found the myth of the Russian Revolution. Shostakovich, whether he liked it or not, was enlisted to celebrate this momentous event of 1917. The result was Symphony No. 12, with the last movement simply entitled ‘The Dawn of Humanity’. An entirely different perspective is offered up in his Symphony No. 9 and in his Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and String Orchestra – where ideological references are completely absent.
