The Boston Symphony Orchestra/Gewandhausorchester Alliance, curated by Andris Nelsons, broke new ground in 2019 with the first-ever joint BSO/GHO concerts, taking place at Symphony Hall during the third “Leipzig Week in Boston.” In this third year of the BSO/GHO Alliance, the Gewandhausorchester itself came to Boston in late October and early November. The gala concert on Friday, November 1 brought together the BSO and GHO feature Olivier Latry in performances of Richard Strauss’ Festive Prelude for organ and orchestra, and BSO wind principals John Ferrillo and Richard Svoboda and GHO string principals Frank-Michael Erben and Christian Giger in Haydn’s Sinfonia concertante in B-flat for oboe, bassoon, violin, and cello; Scriabin’s Poem of Ecstasy. Following the gala concert, there was a festive dinner celebration throughout Symphony Hall.
