Prior to those concerts, on Friday, July 26, Mr. Nelsons and the BSO are joined by Paul Lewis for Mozart’s Piano Concerto. No. 12 in A, K.414, on a program with the BSO’s first performance of Shostakovich’s rarely heard Symphony No. 2 and Ravel’s complete Daphnis et Chloé.
Not only does the festival feature typically enticing programming but it is also opening the Tanglewood Learning Institute, a new four-building complex designed for music and education that will be presenting programs during our meeting dates.
Some Tanglewood Learning Institute venues are restricted to MCANA members only (no companions) and are limited to just 20 seats per venue. Tickets requests provided first received- first served. Currently there are a very limited number of TLI seats still available.
