Shostakovich's Suite on Verses of Michelangelo and the artwork of Michelangelo and others.

To commemorate the 500th anniversary of Michelangelo's birth, Shostakovich set eleven poems by the Renaissance master to music. This symphonic song cycle illuminates the timeless struggle of artists across the ages—from Michelangelo to Beethoven and Shostakovich himself—in their quest to remain free. Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer, on view at The Met Fifth Avenue, November 13 2017–February 12, 2018.
