Dmitri Shotsakovich (1906 - 1975)

January 28, 1936: The Publication in Pravda of the Article "Chaos Instead of Music."  This article signaled Stalin’s displeasure with Shostakovich’s opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk and led to the composer’s “redemption” in his Symphony No. 5.  This program will explore Shostakovich and the sometimes mutually beneficial, sometimes terrifying, relationship between music and the totalitarian state. Suzanne Vega and Michael Tilson Thomas host. Sunday, July 28, 5 to 6 pm.

13 Days When Music Changed Forever: June 30, 4 PM

Igor Stravinsky

The premiere of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring took place on May 29, 1913. The composer's completely original instrumentation and rhythms, and his use of dissonance, have made this work one of the most important of the 20th century, not to mention the riot and ensuing scandal that caused the Paris premiere to be one of the most shocking in all of performance history. 

Hear more about it on today's broadcast - Sunday, June 30, 4 to 6 pm.

The New York Philharmonic: A Jazz Flavor, June 23 At 4 PM
