Skrowaczewski Takes on Shostakovich

When: Fri., Aug. 7 2015

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski conducts the Cleveland Orchestra tonight as it takes a break from playing Blossom to perform at Severance Hall as part of the Orchestra's Summers@Severance series. Skrowaczewski leads the orchestra as it plays Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5. Skrowaczewski knew Shostakovich, who once described the piece as the sound of "forced rejoicing" and said it's "as if someone were beating you with a stick and saying, ‘Your business is rejoicing, your business is rejoicing …’” The concert begins at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $25.
