Final fall concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra

On November 21, 22, 23 & 26, Andris Nelsons leads the BSO in the orchestra’s first-ever Symphony Hall performances of Shostakovich’s rarely heard Symphony No. 2, To October, written to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution. These performances, part of Nelsons’ ongoing Shostakovich series with the BSO, will be recorded for future release on Deutsche Grammophon.

The program begins with the world premiere of Latvian composer Arturs Muskats’ My River runs to thee… (Homage to Emily Dickinson), a co-commission with the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, which Nelsons leads the European premiere of in April 2020. The 18-year-old Swedish violinist Daniel Lozakovich, makes his subscription series debut in Tchaikovsky’s expressive and demanding Violin Concerto. Ukraine-born Estonian composer Galina Grigorjeva’s On Leaving is a five-movement chorus-only setting of Orthodox prayers for the dead, whose work is strongly influenced by Slavonic church music.
