Roderick Cox conducts Mozart and Mendelssohn featuring Principal BSO clarinetist William R. Hudgins

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

American conductor Roderick Cox, makes his BSO debut leading BSO Principal Clarinet William Hudgins in Mozart’s beloved Clarinet Concerto. One of the composer’s last major works, it was written for his clarinetist friend Anton Stadler, perhaps the greatest master of the instrument of his time. Felix Mendelssohn’s always fresh Symphony No. 3, Scottish, was inspired by a long trip to the British Isles in his early twenties, but it wasn’t until more than a decade later that he finally completed this dramatic but classically balanced symphony.

Regrettably, Ton Koopman has had to withdraw from his upcoming appearances with the orchestra due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. We are thankful that the American conductor Roderick Cox, making his BSO debut, was available at short notice to lead the orchestra in these concerts. Please note that Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, Scottish, replaces Beethoven’s Symphony No. 2.
