Juanjo Mena, conductor
Gidon Kremer, violin
PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 1, Classical
WEINBERG Violin Concerto (1959)
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 4

The great Latvian violinist Gidon Kremer joins Spanish conductor Juanjo Mena and the BSO for the Polish-born Soviet composer Moisey Weinberg’s Violin Concerto. Weinberg—whose music has never been performed by the BSO—moved to the Soviet Union at the start of World War II, becoming a friend and protégé of Dmitri Shostakovich, who intervened with authorities when Weinberg was arrested on political grounds. Weinberg’s Violin Concerto (1959) is a substantial work with a strong stylistic kinship to Shostakovich’s music. Opening the program is Prokofiev’s brief and delightful Classical Symphony, modeled on the symphonies of Haydn and Mozart. Tchaikovsky’s emotionally intense Fourth Symphony, completed in 1878, represents the culmination of a traumatic period in the composer’s life.
