The effortlessly musical, multitalented André Previn – known as a jazz and classical pianist, film, stage, and concert composer, and a conductor of the world’s greatest orchestras –had a long, congenial relationship with the BSO and Tanglewood.
This July 13, 2007 concert touches on music closest to his heart: the Viennese classicists Mozart and Haydn, and the colorful, early 20th-century music of Ravel. Maestro Previn is joined by German cellist Daniel Müller-Schott as soloist in Haydn’s jovial and lyrical Cello Concerto and by American mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung for Ravel’s lush three-song cycle Shéhérazade. Mozart’s Symphony No. 29, one of his most important early symphonies, opens the program and Ravel’s brilliant orchestration of his charming piano suite Mother Goose concludes.
Available July 26, 2020 at 2:30pm Eastern / 11:30am Pacific, through August 2.
