BSO — 2009/04/09-14 Edited: Review Added

This week's Boston Symphony Orchestra program, to be streamed over WGBH at 1:30 p.m. EDT on Friday, and WCRB at 8:00 p.m. EDT on Saturday will be:

Sibelius — "The Bard"
Grieg — Piano Concerto
Copland — Suite from "Appalachian Spring"
Bartók — Suite from "The Miraculous Mandarin"

conducted by BSO Assistant Conductor Shi-Yeon Sung, with Nelson Friere as soloist in the Grieg.

There was an article about the conductor in yesterday's Boston Herald. Last summer she conducted a BSO concert at Tanglewood. Here's a Boston Globe article about that and another concert the same weekend.

More information about the concert is available at the BSO website, including podcasts about the pieces, linked to the first page.

And here's the Globe's review.


  1. Hope there better than NZ symphony orchestra

  2. Thanks for commenting here and on my other blog. I'll reply over there as well later — after I get back from our Good Friday service.

    As for the BSO, you can hear for yourself when the concert is streamed over in just under 26 hours' time from the time of this comment.
