Alexander Korsantia, piano
Yaniv Dinur, conductor
Valerie Coleman: Umoja, Anthem of Unity
Ludwig van Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 5 (Emperor)
Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10
This program features three composers who, each in their own way, call for unity and peace. American composer Valerie Coleman writes an anthem for kindness and humanity that fights injustice and racism. New Bedford’s favorite Alexander Korsantia performs the majestic Fifth Piano Concerto of Beethoven – perhaps the most famous humanist composer. The NBSO concludes the season with Shostakovich’s 10th Symphony, a piece full of pain, terror, and, finally – immense joy. Using his own initials translated into musical notes, Shostakovich signifies the triumph of the individual over a terrorizing and dehumanizing regime.
