As the BSO website tells us, this week it's all Schumann.
Various preview materials — program notes, interviews, audio materials — are available at this page of the website:http://www.bso.org/bso/mods/perf_detail.jsp?pid=prod3720067
I was there on Thursday evening and, while nothing really excited me in the performances, it was a pleasant evening with good music. Schumann has good musical ideas, IMO, and he handles them concisely. The Boston Globe reviewer also thought it was good. http://www.boston.com/ae/music/articles/2010/11/19/2_veterans_guide_bsos_all_schumann/
It will be streamed beginning at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, with preconcert show at 7:00 over WCRB — 995allclassical.org
BTW this evening I'm heading in to Boston for a New England Conservatory student production of "The Magic Flute." I love the music, and it will be good to see and hear the opera.
Onto the next year!
