SCHUMANN Symphony No. 1, Spring

Outstanding American violinist Hilary Hahn returns to Symphony Hall for her first appearances with the BSO since 2010 in three performances of Dvořák's Violin Concerto Thursday, October 12-Saturday, October 14. Conducting the concerts is Spanish-born maestro and music director of the Orchestre Philharmonique du Luxembourg Gustavo Gimeno, who makes his Symphony Hall debut. Mr. Gimeno opens the program with György Ligeti's early, Bartók-influenced Concert Românesc, partly based on Romanian folk music. Robert Schumann's Symphony No. 1, Spring, was inspired by the composer's wife, Clara, who soon after their marriage encouraged him to write a symphony. It was premiered by his good friend Felix Mendelssohn.
