Shostakovich – Symphony No. 4

Ever wondered what inspired the creation of a great work of art? Journey into the heart of the music with Beyond the Score®. With live actors, visual illustrations and musical examples, this multimedia experience reveals the illuminating stories found "inside" the score. After intermission, concertgoers return with newly discovered knowledge to hear a performance of the work played in its entirety.

In this remarkable Beyond the Score® exploration, on-screen images and video, combined with the theatrics of a live narrator and actor, take the audience on a journey through the complex historical setting surrounding the composition of this masterpiece.

“I think…in many ways….the Fourth is better than the symphonies that came after”
Dimitri Shostakovich

Beyond the Score® is a production of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Gerald McBurney, Creative Director for Beyond the Score®


Following the concert, Maestro Guerrero will lead an informal Q&A at the back of the concert hall, on the Orchestra Level.
