Violin Concerto 
Symphony No. 3, Eroica

Our 2024 season kicks off with a romantic tour de force: an all-Beethoven program headlined by acclaimed violinist Gil Shaham in the Violin Concerto, a lyrical showcase for the instrument. And, Andris Nelsons leads the BSO in the Eroica Symphony, an emotionally expansive piece that redefined what a symphony was by transforming the heroic journey into symphonic form. 

Tonight’s concert is generously supported by Jane and Robert Mayer, M.D.   

Tonight's performance by Gil Shaham is generously supported by Norma and Jerry Strassler.

Regrettably, Hilary Hahn has had to withdraw from her July concerts on doctors' orders. She is suffering from a double pinched nerve and is unable to perform. We are thankful that Gil Shaham was available on short notice to replace her at this concert. 

Gil Shaham joins Andris Nelsons and the BSO in Mozart Violin Concerto No 3 Hilary Scott
