Boston Symphony Orchestra: Wagner and Sibelius (Digital)

Boston Symphony Orchestra

$9.99 - $13.99

The Boston Symphony Orchestra and Andris Nelsons are very pleased to announce their first compact disc recording, a BSO Classics release pairing the overture to Wagner’s Tannhäuser and the Symphony No. 2 of Jean Sibelius. Both works are taken from concert performances earlier this season at Symphony Hall—the Wagner from Maestro Nelsons’ inaugural concert as music director on September 27, 2014, the Sibelius from his BSO program of November 6-11.

The selections are particularly meaningful. It was hearing Wagner's opera when he was just five years old that made Andris Nelsons want to be a conductor; the Sibelius reflects his strong interest in music of the Scandinavian and Slavic countries, and also builds upon the BSO's distinguished history of past Sibelius recordings. Priced at $17.95, the recording (CD and download) will be available in early December at the Symphony Shop and online.
