Boston Symphony Orchestra Open Rehearsal
Thursday, February 16, 2023
Experience a BSO concert in the making. Open Rehearsals offer audience members a unique perspective on the creative dynamic between orchestra and conductor. Gain a better understanding of how the orchestra strives to refine its performance by occasionally repeating passages or focusing on a particular movement. Lahav Shani conducts Prokofiev, Rachmaninoff, and Saint-Saëns with Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano. Israeli conductor Lahav Shani, making his Symphony Hall debut, and elegant French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet perform Camille Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 5, Egyptian, a brilliantly virtuosic but tuneful Romantic-era work for which Thibaudet is an ideal interpreter. Sergei Prokofiev’s delightful First Symphony was conceived as a 20th-century successor to works by Wolfgang Mozart and Joseph Haydn. Sergei Rachmaninoff’s ingeniously constructed, brilliantly colorful Symphonic Dances was his last finished work. First and second row seats. Cost: $25 Call the COA at 781-786-6280 to register.
