The enormous radius of “life and world” embodied in the genre of the symphony and its possibilities is illustrated by the 1st Philharmonic Concert. The programme features Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 13, also known by its epithet “Babi Yar”, a place of terror near Kiev. It is a work of protest against racism and exploitation in the Soviet Union. The symphony pleads for humanity and the freedom of opinion, painting a picture of Jewish suffering from Egyptian slavery to the horrible mass murder to thousands of Ukrainian Jewish families in the gorge of Babi Yar in 1941. The juxtaposition of this work with Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 speaks to an aspect which is of fundamental importance for the “symphony” and its history: the tension between the human gaze inwards and reflection of the outside world within us on the one hand and the perception and experience of a world of politics and society on the other hand, which is fateful and overwhelming to humans, but must be dealt with by each individual alone.
