New Wednesday, March 29 All-French BSO Concert Replaces Postponed February 9 Concert

To replace the Boston Symphony Orchestra concert of February 9, 2017, canceled due to severe weather conditions, the orchestra will add a concert to its schedule on March 29, 2017. The all-French program features the BSO debut of conductor Alain Altinoglu in collaboration with violinist Renaud Capuçon in Eduoud Lalo's Symphonie espagnole, along with music of Berlioz, Dutilleux, and Roussel. This concert will be performed in addition to the already scheduled March 30-April 1 program featuring Mr. Altinoglu and Mr. Capuçon.

Lalo's Spain-inspired Symphonie espagnole, a piece not performed by the BSO at Symphony Hall since 1985, is one of the great 19th-century showpieces for the violin. Opening the concert is Berlioz's colorful Roman Carnival Overture, which incorporates themes from the composer's Italianate opera Benvenuto Cellini. The second half of the program includes Henri Dutilleux's Symphony No. 2, Le Double-commissioned by the BSO for its 75th anniversary and premiered by the BSO and Charles Munch in 1959-and Albert Roussel's Suite No. 2 from his 1930 ballet Bacchus et Ariane.
