News IconSignature Symphony at TCC Classics Presents Yevtushenko and Shostakovich   

 
“From the Heartland: Tulsa Music Connections” will feature the work of Yevgeny Yevtushenko, one of Russia’s most celebrated poets who lived in Tulsa and taught at the University of Tulsa for nearly 30 years before his death earlier this year. Shostakovich’s Execution of Stepan Razin, undoubtedly his choral-orchestral masterpiece, is a symphonic poem for bass, chorus and orchestra, and is a follow-up to the earlier collaboration between Shostakovich and Yevtushenko for the Thirteenth Symphony. Written when Shostakovich was at the peak of his talent and no longer under the control of Stalin, it sets words by the poet Yevtushenko in a mocking retelling of the story of the 17th century Russian rebel. It is a forceful and threatening work that encapsulates the heart of Russian music, and says much about the brutality of earlier times.
