2021 Tanglewood Music Festival with Andris Nelsons and the BSO

Andris Nelsons is thrilled to return to the Tanglewood Music Festival for their 2021 season this month.

On July 24, Nelsons and John Williams will co-conduct a concert featuring the world premiere of his Violin Concerto No. 2 performed by Anne-Sophie Mutter. His final performance will take place on July 25, presenting a stunning program of works by Iman Habibi, Beethoven, and Schumann, featuring internationally acclaimed pianist Yefim Bronfman.
