For the final subscription series concerts of 2019-20, the eminent German conductor Christoph von Dohnányi makes a welcome return to Symphony Hall after an absence of nearly five years. He and the orchestra are joined by two soloists from within the BSO's ranks, principal flute Elizabeth Rowe and principal oboe John Ferrillo, for György Ligeti's intense, atmospheric Double Concerto for Flute, Oboe, and Orchestra, which they performed together with Dohnányi and the BSO in 2011. Haydn Symphony No. 12, dating from 1763, opens the program; the BSO has never performed this charming symphony from early in Haydn's career. Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, Pathètique, was the last piece the composer wrote. Concerned, like Tchaikovsky's Fourth and Fifth symphonies, with the idea of fate, the Pathètique is a powerfully expressive piece that ends, unusually, with a substantial slow movement.
