Time Out says

Stalin had been dead for nine years when Shostakovich premiered his scathing commentary on anti-Semitism and depravity during and after World War II, his Thirteenth Symphony, subtitled "Babi Yar" after a set of poems by Yevgeny Yevtushenko. The symphony ends with the refrain "I will make my career by not making one,” which seems eerily appropriate as Occupy Wall Streeters rise up against the status quo. Tonight, Kurt Masur returns to the podium he stood on for several years to lead this subversive symphony, along with Schubert's mercifully lighter Unfinished Symphony.
