BSO/Classical New England — 2016/05/14

While we wait for the opening of the BSO's Tanglewood Season, WCRB continues with weekly "encore broadcasts" and webstreams. This week, it's the concert given on October 3, 2015, which the station describes as follows on their BSO page:
In an encore broadcast, Music Director Andris Nelsons and the BSO perform an All-Russian program, including the Symphony No. 9 by Shostakovich, Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1, with soloist Evgeny Kissin, and Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances.
(Most emphasis added.)

As indicated in the review I posted at the time, I enjoyed it back then, and now I'm looking forward to the rehearing at 8:00 p.m., Boston Time (EDT), on May 14.

Further information is available through the links in my review. There's also an introductory podcast available at the WCRB BSO page linked above.
