The Greek conductor Constantinos Carydis makes his BSO debut in a varied program highlighted by the outstanding violinist Midori, whose last BSO subscription series performances were in 2003. She plays Prokofiev's melodic and virtuosically brilliant Violin Concerto No. 1. Two rhythmically vibrant works bookend the program. The Hungarian composer Zoltán Kodály's Dances of Galánta is based on Gypsy music and traditional melodies of the Galánta region, near Bratislava, Slovakia. Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, which Wagner called "the apotheosis of the dance," was premiered under the composer's direction in late 1813, and has remained perennially popular ever since. Carydis also introduces BSO audiences to music by the Greek composer Periklis Koukos, whose In Memoriam Y.A. Papaioannu is a brief but poignant tribute to his former teacher
