BSO Encore Performances from Tanglewood: Harbinson, Gershwin, Copland and Ellington

July 5 @ 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Free

Canadian conductor Jacques Lacombe leads this All-American program to open the BSO’s 2015 season at Tanglewood. He is joined by pianist Kirill Gerstein, a frequent BSO guest and an alumnus of Boston’s Berklee College of Music with an affinity for both classical and jazz idioms, for Gershwin’s exuberant, jazz-inflected Piano Concerto in F. The Obie-award-winning actor John Douglas Thompson narrated Aaron Copland’s tribute to the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Opening this concert is Boston-based Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Harbison’s Remembering Gatsby, a jazzy orchestral score that was the basis of the overture for this opera The Great Gatsby. Duke Ellington’s impressionistic, blues-tinged tone painting of New York City’s Harlem neighborhood completes the program.
