Tanglewood 75th Anniversary GalaAnd here's what I said in my post for that weekend:
Conductors Keith Lockhart, John Williams, Stefan Asbury, David Zinman, and Andris Nelsons join the BSO, the Pops, and the TMC Orchestra in a celebration of Tanglewood.
For Saturday evening, they are giving us a "Tanglewood 75th Anniversary Celebration."What none of us knew at the time was that conductor Andris Nelsons would be chosen to become the Music Director of the BSO. This is one of the two concerts he has conducted with the orchestra which have been broadcast. The other was during last winter's subscription season.
Here's a more complete rundown from the detail page.
I'm definitely looking forward to the Choral Fantasy. The rest of it should be okay, too.
In the Sunday afternoon slot, they'll be retransmitting the Film Night concert conducted by John Williams which they gave us on the 22nd.
Next weekend the BSO's 2013 Tanglewood season begins. This means there will be live concerts friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons, with a different program each time. Most concerts will be by the BSO, but there will be a few by other groups. I'll try to supply details each week.
