The program begins with Glinka’s heroic and exuberant Ruslan & Lyudmila Overture followed by Florence Price’s heartfelt Andante moderato. Shostakovich’s tragicomic Symphony No. 9, a cynical critique of the political and artistic oppression he experienced in Stalinist Soviet Russia, closes the concert.
