What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • Pianist Awadagin Pratt recently appeared on the Collins Center for the Arts Chamber Music Series and now makes his BSO debut with not one, but two piano concerti, by Bach and Jessie Montgomery
  • Composer Nathan Shields is writing a new work for the BSO as the latest recipient of the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation Composer Award, noted by the jury for his “bold, clearly expressed” music
  • Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 was inspired by the atmosphere and colors of Italy, and was what he called the “jolliest” piece he ever wrote
