BSO Artistic Partner Thomas Adès will conduct a concert of works by himself, Mozart and Holst, with Pamela Frank on violin and Antoine Tamestit on viola and the Lorelei Ensemble.

Thomas Adès — Shanty over the Sea
Mozart — Sinfonia concertante for violin and viola
Gustav Holst — The Planets

Wolfgang Mozart’s abundantly tuneful Sinfonia concertante contrasts English composer Gustav Holst’s The Planets, which covers a vast range of musical territory, from the fleet energy of Mercury through the pounding aggression of Mars to the ethereal mysticism of Neptune, which here invokes the versatile women’s vocal group Lorelei Ensemble for the wordless choral part.

Opening the concert, Adès’ own Shanty – Over the Sea, an atmospheric string orchestra piece, interweaves many lines to “create a widening seascape,” he says.
