BARBER Second Essay for Orchestra
PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No. 3
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 3, "Eroica" (orch. Gustav Mahler)

WALTON Ah! How Ephemeral from The Wise Virgins

Program is approximately 1 hour, 50 minutes, including one intermission
It was Barber’s 100th birthday in March, and you can close out his centenary year with one of the composer’s most popular pieces, which received its premiere at Carnegie Hall in 1942. Alsop and her orchestra also take you back to fin-de-siècle Vienna, where Mahler’s re-orchestrations of the “Eroica” polarized audiences. And Trpceski dazzles with Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto.

Simon Trpceski will be signing CDs after this performance.

HARRISON BIRTWISTLE Violin Concerto (NY Premiere)
BARTÓK Violin Concerto No. 2

Christian Tetzlaff
Perspectives artist Tetzlaff demonstrates all that makes him a leading virtuoso on his instrument, taking the lead on every piece of this program. He probes deeply into the full range of the repertoire, including Mozart, British composer Harrison Birtwistle, and Bartók.

Boston Symphony Orchestra Assistant Conductor Marcelo Lehninger will replace James Levine for this performance. Maestro Levine is forced to cancel his appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra due to ill effects from a recent procedure addressing his ongoing back issues, further complicated by a viral infection.
