Why See Boston Symphony Orchestra - Liszt, Ades, and Tchaikovsky?
A World Premiere Piece of Work
Acclaimed British composer, Thomas Ades, takes centre stage in conducting Boston Symphony Orchestra through two Romantic-era scores, and also in presenting the world premiere of his own Piano Concerto which was composed for award-winning Russian pianist Kirill Gerstein.
Liszt - Mephisto Waltz No. 1
Out of the four Mephisto Waltzes Liszt wrote during his life, his first one still remains the most popular of the set and is said to the most beloved piece of work from his entire catalogue.
Thomas Ades - Piano Concerto
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No. 4
Written in dedication to his best friend, Nadezhda von Meck. Dedicating a piece of work to someone in Russia meant you considered them as equals, and affirmed Meck as an equal partner in its creation. An intense and magnifying piece, although dedicated to his best friend, depicts a traumatic period in Tchaikovsky's life.
Performance date: 20 March 2019

Such a joyful hoot. With its kinetic dancing, broad mugging and belty anthems, it makes you believe in musical comedy again.
