JoAnn Falletta conducts Joshua Bell
Tanglewood (297 West St., Lenox, MA 01240)
In her BSO debut, Grammy-winning conductor JoAnn Falletta joins internatinally acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell, a Tanglewood mainstay since 1989, performing Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto.
In the symphonic poems Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome, Ottorino Respighi sought to capture the beauty of his country’s culture and landscape with colorful orchestral cityscapes evoking some of Rome’s most prominent features at different times of day.
Opening the concert, Puerto Rican composer Roberto Sierra’s Fandangos offers an engaging, exploratory riff on one of the most characteristic Spanish dance forms. Sierra blends a classical approach with elements of Afro-Caribbean, South American, Central American, and Spanish musical traditions.
They will also perform Ottorino Respighi’s Fountains of Rome and Pines of Rome.
