Debussy - "Clouds" and "Festivals," from Nocturnes

The phenomenal cello master Yo-Yo Ma kicks off a two-week celebration of John Williams's music for concert hall and film. Williams wrote the Cello Concerto specifically for Ma, at the suggestion of Seiji Ozawa. That legendary conductor is celebrated in our opening piece, Williams's Tributes! For Seiji, written in honor of Ozawa's 25th anniversary with the Boston Symphony. Next, two excerpts from one of Debussy's most popular works, "Clouds and Festivals" from Nocturnes, inspired by Whistler's series of Impressionist paintings by the same name.

Carnegie Hall

8:00 PM, Carnegie Hall
Yannick Nézet-Séguin - Conductor
Lang Lang - Piano
Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 1
Mahler - Symphony No. 10 (Deryck Cooke performing edition)

With a rousing brass fanfare and a rapid solo passage of tumbling octaves, the 18-year-old Rachmaninoff introduced himself to the musical world with his Piano Concerto No. 1. Rachmaninoff stresses flash and fire in this concerto, but its slow movement looks ahead to the lush works of his mature years. At the other end of the spectrum is Mahler at the end of his life. Mahler never lived to complete anything more than the opening Adagio of his Symphony No.
