Revueltas Sensemayá
Shostakovich Symphony No.6

RBC’s Symphony Orchestra returns to the Bradshaw Hall stage with Michael Seal for a short concert showcasing two near-contemporary, but very different 20th century works.

Shostakovich wrote of his 'Symphony No.6' that “music of a contemplative and lyrical order” predominates, and that he “wanted to convey in it the moods of spring, joy, youth”; the first half of the symphony is a slow, brooding first movement which is followed by two much shorter, livelier, faster ones. The concert starts with a rhythmically complex tone poem by Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas.
