CANCELED: ASU Symphony Orchestra: Weber, Liszt and Shostakovich Symphony No. 5
This event has been canceled. Contact the ASU Gammage box office for ticket refunds.
Virtuosic romantic works by Weber and Liszt provide the first-half counterpoint to Shostakovich’s searing Symphony No. 5, written at the height of the Stalinist purges of the 1930s. Ever since its storied premiere in St. Petersburg in 1937, it continues to be performed and remembered among the most moving and dramatic works of its time.
