Andris Nelsons conducts Mozart, Shaw, and Strauss

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer Caroline Shaw wrote her Bach-inspired Punctum originally for string quartet; the BSO-commissioned orchestral version was premiered in summer 2022. The second of his final trilogy of symphonies, composed in 1788, Wolfgang Mozart’s riveting No. 40 in G minor is for many his most familiar symphony. Richard Strauss’ amazingly vivid Alpine Symphony depicts the picturesque ascent and (much faster!) descent of a Bavarian mountain.
