Brian Raphael Nabors, Poulenc and Mendelssohn
August 5 @ 8:00 pm
Earl Lee conducts a concert of works by Brian Raphael Nabors, Poulenc, and Mendelssohn with pianists Christina and Michelle Naughton.
BSO Assistant Conductor Earl Lee makes his BSO debut, joined by the virtuosic piano duo of twins Christina and Michelle Naughton in their Tanglewood debuts performing Francis Poulenc’s impish neoclassical Concerto for Two Pianos.
American composer Brian Raphael Nabors’ exciting and rhapsodic Pulse reflects on the varieties of experience that we might encounter every day, the BSO says. Felix Mendelssohn found inspiration for his intensely Romantic Symphony No. 3 on a trip to Scotland in 1829. Composed a decade later, it was his last completed symphony.
Ticket includes admission to 6 p.m. Prelude Concert with Benjamin Levy, Todd Seeber, Carl Anderson, John Stovall, Edward Kass, Peter Walsh, Charles Clements on basses, tenor Eric Finbarr Carey, Jessica Zhou on harp and Anna Rakitina conducting.
