Event Details

ONLINE SALES HAVE ENDED. Tickets still available at the door.

The Third Reich called Arnold Schoenberg's music "degenerate." The Russian paper Pravda said Dmitri Shostakovich wrote "coarse, primitive and vulgar" compositions. Some of the most enduring music has come from artists under threat of political sanction, violence or worse. In the end, the composers won out. Their music has been played, replayed, repackaged and reimagined in every conceivable way.

Cambridge Philharmonic's show "Degenerates & Copycats" celebrates these musical iconoclasts. Classical works will go head-to-head with electronic music and sampling culture. Tae Kim will solo on Shostakovich's sample-heavy first piano concerto, accompanied by trumpeter Kyle Spraker. Electro artist Chadley will lay down beats for the orchestra on the premiere of "Vacillations I." And Arnold Schoenberg's late-life rewrite of "Transfigured Night" will also be performed, a full-tilt overhaul of his most stormy and redemptive work.
