Composed in 1957, Shostakovich’s 11th symphony commemorates the tragic events of the popular workers revolution of 1905, and more particularly the day of 9 January, when the police and the military opened fire on peaceful demonstrators in Saint-Petersburg. An original soundtrack without film, the symphony progresses through musical images of irresistible force to create a collective fresco of the tragic events of this day: the dull ambiance that fills the square before the Winter Palace, as the crowd gathers, the first shots that ring out and the sudden massacre, the commemoration of victims and the alarms that announce the funerals. 

An imposing force — more than 80 musicians — and a descriptive musical logic: interpreting this score without conductor is a new challenge taken up by the musicians of Les Dissonances to close in apotheosis their season at Dijon!
