The Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra kicks off its 2017 season under the direction of Andris Nelsons on Monday, July 10. The performance features Swedish trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger, one of Mr. Nelsons' closest artistic collaborators, and Thomas Rolfs, BSO principal trumpet and a former TMC Fellow. Highlighting the program are two concertos written for Mr. Hardenberger by acclaimed English composer Mark-Anthony Turnage. Mr. Hardenberger is soloist in the 2004 concerto From the Wreckage, an emotional journey transporting listeners from a spiky introduction to the calm plateau of its final resolution. Hardenberger is joined by Thomas Rolfs for Turnage's 1995 double trumpet concerto Dispelling the Fears. Mark-Anthony Turnage's music has been performed frequently at Tanglewood since he was a TMC Fellow in 1983. Also on the program is Prokofiev's Symphony No. 1, Classical, and Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements.
