Previn, Mutter and Boston Symphony Give World Premiere of Previn's Double Concerto

Classic Arts News   Previn, Mutter and Boston Symphony Give World Premiere of Previn's Double Concerto
 
If this isn't one of the biggest orchestral premieres of the year, it's certainly one of the most glamorous. Andr_ Previn — conductor, composer and bona fide star of (concert) stage and screen — takes the podium of the Boston Symphony Orchestra beginning tonight to conduct the world premiere performances of his Double Concerto for violin, string bass and orchestra. Anne-Sophie Mutter, one of the finest violinists alive today (and surely the most glamorous) takes one solo part, with the other played by the young double-bass virtuoso Roman Patkol‹.

The program — which also includes Mozart's Eine kleine Nachmusik and Violin Concerto No. 1 (with Mutter as soloist) as well as Ravel's complete Ma Mre l'oye (Mother Goose) — will be performed tonight at 8 p.m., tomorrow at 1:30 p.m., and April 21 and 24 at 8 p.m. at Symphony Hall in Boston. Information and tickets are available at www.bso.org.
