BSO Recordings: A Growing Body of Work

The BSO continues to add recordings to its historic collection. Here are two more examples of recordings captured earlier this year.

Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk

Ray and Maria Stata Music Director Andris Nelson conducts Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk

Captured in January 2024 at Symphony Hall

Begun when Andris Nelsons was appointed as music director in the 2014–15 season, the performance was part of a multi-season focus on Shostakovich's works. In the years since, a complete cycle of the composer's 15 symphonies appeared on the recording label Deutsche Grammophon—an eight-year effort that collectively earned three Grammy Awards and a mountain of rave reviews. The last recording in the symphony cycle, featuring symphonies nos. 2, 3, 12, and 13 (Babi Yar), was released in October 2023. Future releases will include the composer’s complete concertos, featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Baiba Skride, and pianist Yuja Wang.

Piano Concerto for the Left Hand with Seong-Jin Cho

Recorded in January 2024 at Symphony Hall

Continuing a survey of Ravel’s works for piano and orchestra with the BSO, 2015 Chopin Competition Winner Seong-Jin Cho performed the composer’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand in a program with Igor Stravinsky's revolutionary Rite of Spring. The Ravel concerto with Cho as soloist was recorded in Boston for a future release on the Deutsche Grammophon label.
