Andris Nelsons conducts the BSO at Carnegie Hall

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Carnegie Hall - New York City, NY - View Map

A heartfelt memorial, a New York premiere inspired by Arabic poetry, and a phantasmagorical tale of vivid instrumental detail spotlights the virtuosity of one of America's finest orchestras. Ravel honored friends lost in the First World War with Le tombeau de Couperin, a gentle 20th-century version of the Baroque dance suite. Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique has its calm passages, but also includes musical depictions of hallucinations, murder, execution, and a chilling finale that depicts a witches' sabbath. George Benjamin's colorful Dream of the Song sets verse inspired by the Arabic poetry that flowered in Andalusia from the ninth century onwards.
