Bernard Haitink, conductor
Women of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus
HAYDN Symphony No. 60, Il distratto
DEBUSSY Nocturnes
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7

BSO Conductor Emeritus Bernard Haitink leads the first BSO performances in thirty years of Joseph Haydn’s 1774 Symphony No. 60, The Distracted, which was fashioned in six movements from music Haydn wrote for a play by that name. The women of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus are a provocative, wordless presence in the “Sirens” movement of Debussy’s three-movement orchestral suite Nocturnes. Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, premiered at the end of 1813, has been an audience favorite ever since. Wagner called it “the apotheosis of the dance”; its entrancing second-movement Allegretto, one of the most familiar movements in Beethoven’s symphonies, was encored in its first performances.
