The Boston Symphony Orchestra Announces Two Programs at New York’s Carnegie Hall on April 23 & 24, 2025, Led by Music Director Andris Nelsons

The Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) and Music Director Andris Nelsons are thrilled to announce two programs as part of Carnegie Hall’s 2024–25 season, each pairing a concerto performance by an acclaimed soloist with one of Dmitri Shostakovich’s symphonies. On April 23, 2025, Mitsuko Uchida, a renowned interpreter of Beethoven, performs his Piano Concerto No. 4, followed by Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 15. The following evening, the incomparable Yo-Yo Ma joins the BSO to play Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1, paired with the composer’s Symphony No. 11, The Year 1905. Both symphonies included in the 2025 Carnegie Hall programs will also be performed by the BSO in May 2025 at the first ever Shostakovich Festival Leipzig, a six-week festival honoring the 50th anniversary of the death of the great Russian composer.

The BSO will announce complete details of its 2024–25 Symphony Hall season in early April 2024.
