This concert features the very powerful Shostakovich Symphony No. 13 “Babi Yar,” and “I Never Saw Another Butterfly” by Charles Davidson. A setting of poems by the renowned Soviet writer Evgeny Yevtushenko, Shostakovich’s work significantly memorialized the 1941 massacre of Ukrainian Jews by Nazi forces at Baba Yar.
