Tanglewood — 2012/08/03-05

Sorry for being so late posting: I've been preoccupied with other things, some of which were important. Anyway, here's the line-up for this weekend.

Friday, August 3.  Lorin Maazel is scheduled to conduct the following:
MOZART - Symphony No. 38, Prague
MOZART - Arias from Così fan tutte, The Marriage of Figaro, and Don Giovanni
RAVEL - Alborada del gracioso
RAVEL - Don Quichotte à Dulcinée, for baritone and orchestra
RAVEL - Daphnis et Chloé, Suite No. 2
Baritone Gerald Finley will be the soloist. Links to notes and audio previews are on this page of the BSO website

Saturday, August 4.  Under the baton of Christoph von Dohnány the orchestra will play Schumann's Symphony No. 4 and Brahms' Piano Concerto No. 2, with Yefim Bronfman as soloist in the latter piece. The BSO performance detail page, with links for notes and audio previews is here.

Sunday, August 5.  Sunday afternoon brings us a world premiere, a piece by Michael Gandolfi titled "Night Train to Perugia," which he composed on commission from the BSO. Also on the program are Piano Concerto No. 5, "Egyptian," by Saint-Saëns, with Jean-Yves Thibaudet as soloist and the Symphonie Fantastique of Berlioz at the end to keep the audience in their seats until the end of the show. Lorin Maazel conducts again. The performance detail page links only notes and audio for the Berlioz.

The website for Classical New England, which streams and broadcasts these concerts, has its own links to material about the concerts, both on the home page (as of this writing) and on their page devoted to their BSO program(me)s.

For timings, see my posts for previous Tanglewood weekends.
