NSO musicians on Shostakovich's masterpiece:
"Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 is a masterpiece of emotional outpouring; it also displays his affection for coding words into musical tones. For example, the solo horn calls out his love interest Elmira as E-La-MI-Re-A or E-A-E-D-A. His own encoded name DSCH or D-Eb-C-B intertwines with hers, and reappears in the finale's triumphant horns and trumpets."
--Laurel Ohlson, NSO acting principal horn
"We played this great symphony many times under Mstislav Rostropovich, our late former Music Director--it has humor, pathos, drama, and sarcasm. I particularly love the piccolo parts in this piece. There are moments that are shatteringly beautiful and shriekingly terrifying."
--Alice Weinreb, NSO flute
