‘Necessary for humanity, and certainly for me’:

Britten, Shostakovich, and the Music of Memory

Shostakovich and Britten shared no common language yet nonetheless forged a friendship unique in the history of modern music. At its core was a shared commitment to creating art that bore authentic witness to the dreams and catastrophes of twentieth-century life. Created by critic-historian Jeremy Eichler as part of Time’s Echo Live, an acclaimed new series bridging the arts with the humanities, this program blends narrative and live performance to open up multiple new perspectives — on the legacy of both composers, on the memory of the Second World War, on the meaning of listening, and on the art of friendship.

Featuring a performance of Shostakovich Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 67 by members of the Borromeo String Quartet and guest artist Haesun Paik.

Produced by BroadBand Collaborative

Presented by John Nicholas Brown Center for Advanced Study, Brown University; Music Department, Brown University
