About This Event
BSO Artistic Partner Thomas Adès and pianist Kirill Gerstein reprise their highly acclaimed performances of Adès's BSO-commissioned Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, premiered at Symphony Hall in February 2019. They have performed the piece dozens of times worldwide, and its BSO world premiere recording was issued on CD. In these concerts Kirill Gerstein also plays Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand. Autumnal Sketch
is a brief, atmospheric Prokofiev rarity never before played by the BSO. Concluding the concerts is Janáček's three-part Taras Bulba
, a vibrant musical response to Nikolai Gogol's romantic novel about a Cossack soldier.
