Previous Events

Composer Spotlight Series: Shostakovich

Thursday, January 11, 2018 - 7:00-8:00pm
World Chess Hall of Fame: 4652 Maryland Ave, St. Louis, MO 63108

Russian composer, Dmitri Shostakovich (1906-1975), was one of the major composers of the 20th century. Achieving fame during the height of the Soviet Union, he was at various points championed and persecuted by the government as they imposed strict standards for Soviet art. Shostakovich’s music reflects this emotional roller coaster, at times full of humor, wit, and nationalism, while at others portraying defiance and bleak resignation.
This concert will feature Russian pianist, Alla Voskoboynikova, and members of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra in a program of chamber music for piano and strings, most notably Shostakovich’s Piano Quintet in G minor, Op. 57. An immediate success, the work won the Stalin Prize and was frequently performed by Russian string quartets, often with the composer at the piano.
Performed by members of the St. Louis Symphony:
Alla Voskoboynikova, piano;
Xiaoxiao Qiang & Hyorin Han, violins;
Chris Tantillo, viola;
Yin Xiong, cello.
Reservations are required.
To purchase tickets, visit or call (314) 367-9243.
*$5 tickets available for members, seniors, and military.
Admission includes one free drink and complimentary hors d’oeuvres.
