Andris Nelsons and the Boston Symphony Orchestra - November 18, 2019

Born in Riga, Latvia, Andris Nelsons is the fifteenth music director in the history of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Andris Nelsons made his BSO debut at Carnegie Hall in March 2011, his Tanglewood debut in July 2012, and his BSO subscription series debut in January 2013.

Nelsons and the BSO return to Carnegie Hall on Monday, November 18, 2019 - Latvia’s birthday.

Be swept away by the wonder, magic, and breathless virtuosity of masterpieces by Grieg and Mahler. From its famous opening flourish, Grieg’s concerto thrills with bold keyboard writing, but its stream of gorgeous melodies—many suggesting Norwegian folk songs—are also stunning. Mahler’s symphony flirts with folk themes too, but it’s only one facet of a magnificently scored gem that opens with the evocative sound of sleigh bells and culminates in a child’s sweet song extolling heaven’s joys.
