Tanglewood — 2012/07/27-29

Since I'll be away later this week, I'm trying to schedule this to post on Thursday.

July 27.  The weekend begins with the Friday evening concert at 8:30. The BSO website only tells us what is on the program and links the program notes. But if you put your cursor on a picture, a pop-up box identifies the artist; and if you click on the picture, you get the artist's bio. It turns out the conductor is Marcelo Lehninger, and the pianist is Nelson Freire.

MOZART - Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K.466
VILLA-LOBOS - Momoprecoce, Fantasy for piano and orchestra
MUSSORGSKY (orch. RAVEL) - Pictures at an Exhibition
For Classical New England's preview material go to their BSO Tanglewood page, and scroll down to the weekend of July 27-29.

July 28.  Saturday night brings, per the website
BERLIOZ - La Damnation de Faust
Charles Dutoit conducts. You can check the website page for the singers and choruses. Not much at Classical New England's website for this one. Maybe more will come later.

July 29.  The Sunday matinee at 2:30 brings Charles Dutoit and Emmanuel Ax in the following program:

BEETHOVEN - Piano Concerto No. 3
TCHAIKOVSKY - Symphony No. 5
The BSO website is here. The CNE website (link above) has a preview of the Tchaikovsky.

Ron Della Chiesa's "pre-game show" begins a half hour before each concert, and for the hour before that they give something called "Tanglewood Today" with recordings that somehow relate to Tanglewood. As always, the webstream is at and the broadcasts on 99.5 FM.
