CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Wednesday, April 15, 2015 | 8 PM

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
“Nelsons … very rarely give[s] a standard performance … His music making … project[s] freshness and a viscerally in-the-moment quality …” wrote The Boston Globe of the Boston Symphony Orchestra and its exciting new music director. Andris Nelsons and the orchestra present a fascinating program that includes the New York premiere of a work by Gunther Schuller, a beloved Mozart concerto, and Strauss’s sumptuously scored tone poem Ein Heldenleben.

The contemporary work on this program is part of My Time, My Music.
