Karina Canellakis conducts Dvořák, Lutosławski, and Szymanowski with Nicola Benedetti, violin

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Making her BSO debut, violinist Nicola Benedetti joins conductor Karina Canellakis in her Symphony Hall debut for Karel Szymanowski’s scintillating Violin Concerto No. 2 from 1933, his last major work. His compatriot Witold Lutosławski’s folk-music influenced Concerto for Orchestra (1954) helped establish his international reputation. Antonín Dvořák’s nature-inspired tone poem Wood Dove has not been played by the BSO since 1905.
