The acclaimed pianist Yefim Bronfman joins BSO Music Director Andris Nelsons and the orchestra for two January programs. In this concert he plays Beethoven's lyrical, warm Piano Concerto No. 4. Continuing the BSO's immersion in the music of Dmitri Shostakovich, Andris Nelsons conducts Rudolf Barshai's string-orchestra arrangement of the composer's Eighth String Quartet, Op. 110 (1960), which the composer suggested was his most autobiographical work. (Barshai was an important conductor and champion of Shostakovich's music.) The Czech composer Antonín Dvořák's New World Symphony is the most important piece he composed during his years in the U.S., when he was director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York City. The beloved four-movement symphony uses musical elements shared by both North American and Czech folk music.
