Andris Nelsons conducts Bernstein, Ogonek, and Shostakovich with Janine Jansen, violin 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 Dutch violinist Janine Jansen is soloist in Bernstein’s Serenade.
