Boston Symphony Orchestra
Beloved guest conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos returns to the Boston Symphony Orchestra October 27-November 1 for two works emerging from the German Romantic tradition. Internationally admired Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer kicks off the program as soloist in Schumann’s Violin Concerto, written in 1853, just three years before the composer’s death. One of Schumann’s least well-known significant works, the concerto has a strange and complicated history and went unperformed until 1937. Concluding the program is Strauss’s captivating and episodic tone poem Ein Heldenleben (A Hero’s Life), which provides the orchestra with a chance to fully flex its muscles.
