BSO — On Tour — 2015/04/18

While the orchestra is wowing them (I hope) in Carnegie Hall, WCRB will reprise the August 10 all-Tchaikovsky concert from last summer's Tanglewood season with David Zinman conducting and Yo-Yo Ma  soloing on the cello. They fill out the time slot with a piece from the July 19 concert under the baton of Andris Nelsons. The station's BSO page lists the works:
In an encore broadcast from the 2014 Tanglewood season, David Zinman leads the BSO in an All-Tchaikovsky program, including the Andante cantabile for cello and strings and Rococo Variations, both with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the Polonaise from Eugene Onegin, and the Symphony No. 6, the "Pathétique." Also, BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons conducts Tchaikovsky's Capriccio italien at Tanglewood.
Go there also for information about upcoming broadcasts/webstreams and an overview of the 2015-2016 season in Symphony Hall.

I posted about the performances here and here. Since the Tanglewood concerts are not repeated several times the way the Symphony Hall ones are, there are no reviews available when I preview them. If you really want reviews, you can always delve into the Globe and the Intelligencer's websites.

The broadcast/webstream will be in the usual time slot; and Monday will bring the usual rerun of last week's concert — Schuller (premiere), Mozart, and Strauss.
