RAVEL Le Tombeau de Couperin
STRAUSS Death and Transfiguration
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 8, Unfinished
STRAUSS “Dance of the Seven Veils” from Salome

Available on demand July 28-September 30

BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons and Tanglewood Music Center (TMC) Conducting Fellows lead the TMC Orchestra in music showcasing instrumental color and virtuosity. Abandoned in its two-movement form by Franz Schubert in 1822, the B minor symphony stands out for innovations in form, melody, and orchestration. The two Richard Strauss works on the program are poles apart in intention: the early Death and Transfiguration is a profound imagining of a man’s thoughts and revelations at the end of his life, while the “Dance of the Seven Veils” from the opera Salome is the alluring means by which, at her mother Herodias’s bidding, Salome seduces her stepfather Herod. Maurice Ravel’s charming orchestral suite Le Tombeau de Couperin was in part inspired by the French Baroque composer François Couperin.


Newly recorded video performances by the Boston Symphony, Boston Pops, and BSO musicians in chamber music, along with behind-the-scenes storytelling with conductors, composers, and musicians, plus much more.
