RECITALS FROM THE WORLD STAGE SERIES: LUTHER AND ARTHUR JUSSEN, PIANISTS
Wednesday, July 15, 8 p.m. – Hosted by Karen Allen
,
$8 for single video stream, $42 for series
The Dutch piano duo of brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen perform a recital of music for piano four-hands at Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw. Four-hand keyboard music epitomizes at-home music-making with family and friends, and all of these pieces stem from that tradition. Mozart spent his childhood performing piano four-hands music with his sister Nännerl; his D major sonata, written when he was 16, reflects this intimacy. Schubert’s warmly passionate Fantasy in F minor is a late work dedicated to one of his own piano students, and Ravel wrote his delightful Mother Goose for the precocious children of a friend. The Polish composer Hanna Kulenty wrote VAN… in 2014 for the Jussen brothers themselves.

BSO MUSICIANS IN RECITAL FROM TANGLEWOOD SERIES
Friday, July 17, 8 p.m. – Hosted by Lauren Ambrose
,
$5 for single video stream, $28 for series
In addition to working together in their usual large-ensemble setting, the BSO’s individual musicians frequently perform as soloists or together in chamber music, a pursuit requiring a different, more intimate mode of musical collaboration. American composer Gabriela Lena Frank’s music draws on and transcends her rich cultural heritage, which includes Peruvian, Chinese, and Eastern European Jewish elements. Performed by BSO violinist Lucia Lin, the first movement, “Prayer,” of Frank’s big solo violin Suite Mestiza was inspired by Peruvian religious songs on Quechua texts. Lin and BSO cellist Owen Young perform Maurice Ravel’s Sonata for violin and cello, a varied, full-scale, four-movement work composed in memory of his colleague Claude Debussy. The German-born Charles Martin Loeffler was a member of the BSO violin section in its earliest decades and a mainstay of Boston’s musical life until his death in 1935. His Two Rhapsodies are impressionistic instrumental revisions of pieces that began life as songs.

BSO ENCORE PERFORMANCES FROM TANGLEWOOD SERIES
Sunday, July 19, 2:30 p.m. – Hosted by Jamie Bernstein
FREE video stream
This warm and engaging August 17, 2013, program, led by BSO Conductor Emeritus Bernard Haitink, features German violinist Isabelle Faust in Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5, nicknamed “Turkish” for the fiery music in its finale. Mozart wrote all five of his violin concertos in the mid-1770s, when he was in his late teens. Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony is the last of the trio of symphonies with vocal movements using texts from the German folk poetry collection Des Knaben Wunderhorn (“The Boy’s Magic Horn”). By far Mahler’s most gregarious symphony, the Fourth bursts with gorgeous melody and concludes with a setting for soprano and orchestra of the Wunderhorn text “Life in Heaven,” sung in this performance by Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling.

TANGLEWOOD MUSIC CENTER CHAMBER CONCERTS
Sunday, July 19, 10 a.m. – Hosted by Norman Fischer with special guest Dawn Upshaw
FREE audio stream
Under the leadership of soprano Dawn Upshaw, the TMC Vocal Arts Program offers singers diverse projects in the song, chamber, and contemporary repertoire, all of which are featured in this broadcast of performances from 2015 to 2019. Vocal Fellows begin their summer studying Bach’s foundational cantatas under composer and Bach specialist John Harbison. Art song projects are drawn from both the old canon—like those of Viennese composer Josef Marx—and the new, as with Elizabeth Vercoe’s wonderfully witty Irreveries from Sappho. Experience in new music is central for Vocal Fellows, who often give world premieres of works like Fred Lerdahl’s sultry Fire and Ice, commissioned by the TMC for its 75th anniversary (and featuring BSO principal bass Edwin Barker). The fruits of essential collaborations between Vocal Fellows and their instrumental colleagues can be heard in performances of Britten’s vivid Canticle V, Mahler’s despairing Songs of a Wayfarer, and Schoenberg’s searching String Quartet No. 2.

Brief Background on Tanglewood and the Boston Symphony Orchestra
—–
Tanglewood, located in the Berkshire Hills of Lenox and Stockbridge, MA, has been the summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra since 1937 when the festival was founded by Serge Koussevitzky (BSO Music Director 1924-1949). In addition to performances by the BSO and the annual Popular Artists series, Tanglewood also presents concerts by the Boston Pops, a chamber music and recital series in Ozawa Hall, and performances by the Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center, the BSO’s acclaimed summer music academy, established in 1940 by Koussevitzky. The Tanglewood Learning Institute—introduced in summer 2019 and offering a wide spectrum of performances and multidisciplinary activities designed to engage curious minds seeking to become more involved with music and the arts—is Tanglewood’s first new programmatic offering since the introduction of its Popular Artists series in the 1960s. TLI activities take place in the Linde Center for Music and Learning, a four-building complex that opened to critical and popular acclaim in summer 2019.—–Tanglewood typically draws an attendance of approximately 340,000 people and brings more than $100 million in economic activity annually to the Berkshires region. Except for several years during World War II, when the performance schedule was curtailed or, in 1945, canceled in its entirety, Tanglewood has been a fixture in the Berkshires and has strengthened its position as this country’s premier summer music festival. This year, the unprecedented health crisis resulting from the spread of COVID-19 has necessitated the cancellation of live performances with audiences at Tanglewood for summer 2020. In response to this understandable disappointment, the BSO has put all its creative energy into offering thoughtful and innovative online performance streams, Tanglewood 2020 Online Festival, designed to connect performers—both BSO musicians and guest artists—with audiences. In addition, the BSO is pleased to open the magnificent Tanglewood grounds to the public on a limited, scheduled basis. Further information about Tanglewood can be found at www.tanglewood.org; further details about the Tanglewood Learning Institute can be found at www.tli.org.
