Berkeley Symphony steps into the New Year with Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony 

Thu., Jan. 26 2012
510-642-9988
Music Director Joana Carneiro and Berkeley Symphony, joined by young soloists from the Pacific Boychoir Academy, kick off the New Year with a concert of entrancement and reflection.

One of the most exquisite instrumental fantasies, Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune evokes a mythical and sensual dream world. A somber yet evocative reflection of World War II follows with Henry Dutilleux's The Shadows of Time. The concert closes with Shostakovich's rebellious Fifth Symphony-written at the height of Stalin's Great Terror, it is hauntingly beautiful and triumphant.

Tickets start at $20. For more information,
