CELEBRATE THE MUSIC OF THREE MEN WHO USED THEIR ART TO SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER AND UNITE WORLDWIDE AUDIENCES.
It was a time of tremendous tumult; worldwide economic depression and the rise of oppressive regimes in the 1930s led to World War II, during which an estimated 60 million people died. Yet in this dark era, Benjamin Britten, Sergei Prokofiev and Dmitri Shostakovich produced works that stirred nations toward hope and a brighter future.
Britten, Prokofiev and Shostakovich all believed that the artist should serve society by creating music that would inspire justice and fairness. Join the CSO and Jaap van Zweden for a three-week journey through their works, which celebrate music’s ability to connect people and harness the power of shared experience.
ENHANCE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH FILM & POETRY
Britten, Prokofiev and Shostakovich were all deeply collaborative composers who contributed much of their music to multifaceted art forms, ranging from opera and ballet to film and television. The Truth to Power Festival explores the creative challenges and triumphs of poets and filmmakers who were these composers’ contemporaries.
