The Boston Conservatory Orchestra presents a concert of two major symphonies: Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 (“Pastoral”) and William Grant Still’s Symphony No. 5 (“Western Hemisphere”). Each represents nature in its own way, with Beethoven enjoying the fruits of being outside in nature, and with Still contemplating the Western Hemisphere’s new dawn, after the imaginary collapse of a major civilization. Both works are extremely descriptive as products of their own time. Also on the program is Post Silentium by the composer, pianist, poet, and artist Lera Auerbach, providing a contemplative balance between the two symphonic pillars.
