Shostakovich wrote his impassioned Leningrad Symphony during the grueling 900-day Nazi siege of the city, and its dramatic score for a large orchesta has come to
symbolize the triumph of the human spirit in times of conflict.

Also on the program is Andrzej Panufnik's Sinfonia Elegaica, a poignant expression of consolation for all victims of war. I, Culture was founded in 2011 by Poland's Adam Mickiewicz Institute. It brings together exceptional young musicians from the former Soviet and Eastern Bloc states of Poland, Ukraine, Georgia, Belarus, Moldova, Armenia and Azerbajian, Its leader is the Ukranian conductor, Kirill Karabits.
