Andris Nelsons conducts Bernstein, Ogonek, and Shostakovich with Jennifer Koh, violin, Linus Schafer-Goulthorpe, boy soprano, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus with James Burton, conductor

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Andris Nelsons leads two works new to the BSO repertoire: the BSO-commissioned Starling Variations by American composer Elizabeth Ogonek and Dmitri Shostakovich’s rarely heard 1930 Symphony No. 3 for chorus and orchestra, an early, jingoistic hymn to the Soviet experiment, continuing Nelsons’ and the BSO’s multi-season survey of the composer’s complete symphonies. The Tanglewood Festival Chorus also joins the BSO for Leonard Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, sung in Hebrew and featuring Linus Schafer-Goulthorpe, boy soprano, as soloist, and American violinist Jennifer Koh makes her Boston Symphony Orchestra debut as soloist in Bernstein’s Serenade.

This week’s performances by the Tanglewood Festival Chorus are supported by the Alan. J. and Suzanne W. Dworsky Fund for Voice and Chorus.

Please note that Janine Jansen has withdrawn from these performances due to illness. We are fortunate that Jennifer Koh was available to perform Bernstein's Serenade in her place.
