    Witness “A Soviet Artist’s Response to Just Criticism” in one of history’s most unnecessary musical apologies, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5.The Beethoven piano cycle ends with Swiss pianist Louis Schwizgebel performing his Piano Concerto No. 2, which was designed to show off the young composer’s virtuosity as a soloist.Beethoven’s orchestral tribute to the heroics of the Roman general Coriolanus was not inspired by Shakespeare, or was it?Decide for yourself: Is Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 the height of patriotism, an ironic protest, or a masterful blend of both?Estimated concert length: 1 hour, 40 minutes (including a 20 minute intermission)
