QUOTE FROM BSO MUSIC DIRECTOR ANDRIS NELSONS
[Andris Nelsons (Photo by Marco Borggreve)]“In looking forward to my fifth season of making music together with the extraordinary Boston Symphony Orchestra, I could not be happier about the sense of family that continues to deepen the connections between the BSO, our devoted audience, and me. This shared musical journey is so meaningful to all of us, and so important for bringing our entire community together, including not just our loyal subscribers, but the many new concertgoers we’re pleased to welcome to Symphony Hall.

The 2018-19 season has so much to look forward to: for example, Shostakovich’s first and last symphonies as part of our recording project with Deutsche Grammophon; concert performances of Puccini’s beautiful one-act opera Suor Angelica; Bruckner’s unfinished Symphony No. 9 as part of our ongoing exploration of his symphonies; all-Strauss and all-Beethoven programs; Bach’s Christmas Oratorio for our second “Leipzig Week in Boston,” and several commissioned works. These include the world premiere of Sebastian Currier’s Aether for violin and orchestra, co-commissioned by the BSO and Gewandhausorchester Leipzig as part of our BSO/GHO Alliance, and the American premieres of two other BSO commissions, Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Remembering and Andris Dzenītis’ Māra, which is one of two works by Latvian composers being played in the fall—the other is Maija Einfelde’s Lux aeterna—to mark the 100th anniversary of Latvian independence.

We also look forward to having three members of our BSO family conduct subscription programs in 2018-19—Associate Conductor Ken-David Masur in October, Artistic Partner Thomas Adès in March, and Youth and Family Concerts Conductor Thomas Wilkins also in March—and to working with so many wonderful guest artists as part of what promises to be such an exciting season. It also means a great deal that the BSO continues to reach out to new and young audiences through such great programs as BSO in Residence in Jamaica Plain and our Community Chamber Concerts throughout Boston and the larger Massachusetts community, as well as our amazing family and youth concert programs and discounted ticket offerings for high school and college students and young adults.    

I thank our audiences for their great devotion and support. All of us at the BSO look forward to seeing you at Symphony Hall in 2018-19!”

[BSO and GWO Side by Side]

BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA/GEWANDHAUS ORCHESTRA ALLIANCE ACTIVITIES IN 2018/19
Unprecedented in the classical music world, the BSO/GHO Alliance is a new five-year multidimensional collaboration (2018-2022) designed to explore each ensemble’s unique world of music-making and the great traditions and historic accomplishments that have influenced their reputations as two of the world's great orchestras; this special alliance was launched with the first “Leipzig Week in Boston” in February 2018. As the central figure in bringing the BSO and GHO together, Andris Nelsons, who is also Kapellmeister of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, is intricately involved in the planning and implementation of all the programming initiatives of the BSO/GHO Alliance, which was announced in September 2015. Starting in fall 2018, the BSO/GHO Alliance will initiate a musician exchange program offering musicians from each orchestra a rare opportunity to spend three months performing with its partner orchestra in the latter's home city. BSO associate concertmaster Elita Kang, violinist Catherine French, violist Danny Kim, and bass Todd Seeber will each take part in the program (two in the fall, two in the spring); they will immerse themselves in the many activities of the Gewandhausorchester, including weekly subscription concerts, regular concerts with the Leipzig Opera, and Sunday performances of Bach cantatas at St. Thomas Church, where Bach composed weekly cantatas from 1723 through 1750. Four Gewandhausorchester musicians will also participate in the exchange program during the 2018-19 season; they will perform with the BSO during its weekly subscription concerts, and also take part in performances with the Boston Pops during the holiday and spring seasons.

[Elita Kang, Catherine French, Danny Kim, and Todd Seeber]

The BSO/GHO Alliance has initiated a series of co-commissions, starting with new works by German composer Jörg Widmann (American premiere by BSO to take place on March 29, 2018) and American composer Sean Shepherd (world premiere performance during BSO’s first “Leipzig Week” in Boston, February 8, 2018), both of which are also to be performed in Leipzig in the 2017-18 concert season. As mentioned previously in this press release, composers to be featured in the 2018-19 concert season include American composer Sebastian Currier (world premiere) and Latvian composer Andris Dzenītis (American premiere).  For the second “Leipzig Week in Boston” (November/December 2018), the BSO will give performances of Bach's complete Christmas Oratorio, in celebration of the great musical traditions of Bach cantata and oratorio performances in Leipzig. These performances will be accompanied by displays of historic materials from the Leipzig Bach Archive and panel discussions on the traditions of Bach performance in the United States. In addition, major touring initiatives will include a performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in Leipzig in September 2018 as part of a late-summer European tour. Further details about the BSO/GHO Alliance are available here.
