ANDRIS NELSONS Conducts BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

MASTERCLASS by Principal of Boston Symphony Orchestra − FLUTE −

FREE OPEN REHEARSAL

Message from Music Director Andris Nelsons

It is an extraordinary honor for me to bring the Boston Symphony Orchestra to
Japanfor our first tour together in this amazing country where the BSO has such an
important history of concerts under BSO Conductor Laureate Seiji Ozawa.
We hope that the BSO's many fans in Japan will enjoy the repertoire that we've
chosen to illustrate the Boston Symphony's extraordinary range of musical gifts.
From Rachmaninoff's intense emotional expressivity, to Mahler's massive scope of
new ideas, Shostakovich's breathtaking depiction of the Russian Revolution of 1905,
and Haydn's vivid sound-painting, these symphonic works will showcase the breadth
and scope of the BSO's remarkable ability to express ideas, emotion, and inspiration.
Furthermore, Gil Shaham—one of the BSO's treasured guest soloists—will join us
for Tchaikovsky's masterpiece violin concerto. The BSO is also very pleased to
spotlight two of its own superb musicians—principal flute, Elizabeth Rowe, and
principal harp, Jessica Zhou, in Mozart's Concerto for Flute and Harp.     
In addition to all the great music-making we also really look forward to spending
time taking in Japan's beautiful landscape and thrilling cityscapes and enjoying its
fantastic food—including my personal favorite, sushi—as well as interacting with its
most generous, kind, and warm people, who have always shown the BSO such welcome, appreciation, and affection.  Most important, we
hope our performances will bring our audiences a true sense of inspiration—something very special to remember us by until we meet again!"
