Program Notes & Works
Four Black American Dances
Carlos Simon's BSO-commissioned Four Black American Dances celebrates the composer’s heritage and the presence of dance in Black culture as a medium for ritual, worship, celebration, and social connectivity.
Schelomo: Rhapsodie hébraïque, for cello and orchestra
Bloch wrote Schelomo with inspiration from Ecclesiastes; the solo cello represents the voice of King Solomon.
Symphony No. 7
Beethoven's thrilling Seventh Symphony is one of his most popular works, and was one of his own personal favorites.
