About This Event
Cellist Yo-Yo Ma joins Andris Nelsons and the BSO for this one-time-only Sundayafternoon concert, performing Haydn's high-spirited Cello Concerto No. 1 and Richard Strauss's early lyrical, single-movement Romance, written when the composer was just nineteen. A meditation on the death of an artist, Death and Transfiguration
is the most inward-looking of Strauss's series of tone poems composed in his twenties and thirties. The Symphonic Fantasy from Die Frau ohne Schatten
is Strauss's own lush, one-movement orchestral suite from his 1917 opera.
