This season at New England Conservatory, 30+ concerts demonstrate just how vital music is to human struggle, and what revolution in artistic expression sounds like. Programs range from roots music to Beethoven, fight songs to anti-war anthems. Join our year-long exploration of how music speaks truth to power!
Written for a Survivor
Maurice Ravel was one of many composers who wrote new repertoire for a great concert pianist determined to continue his career after his right arm was amputated during World War I. In this concert, David Horton '17, a student of Wha Kyung Byun, will be soloist in Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand.
Along with the Ravel, NEC's Calderwood Director of Orchestras Hugh Wolff leads the NEC Symphony in works that were revolutionary in musical history.
