Orchestral bomb detonates, producing a high musical yield


7:30 Saturday, January 25, 2020
Greaves Concert Hall, NKU

The KSO offers orchestral warmth in January with the area premiere of John Adam’s Dr. Atomic Symphony, written from music taken from his 2005 opera about Robert Oppenheimer, the Manhattan Project, and the creation of the atomic bomb. Dimitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 11 (The Year 1905) may, for political cover, refer to a massacre of innocents Russians by Tsarist troops , but the symphony was written  in the aftermath of the Soviet invasion of Hungary in 1957.
