In the first half of the concert, soloist Håkan Hardenberger opens his series The Trumpet Shall Sound with a performance of Bernd Alois Zimmermann’s jazz-inspired trumpet concerto.
Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony is the last symphony the composer completed. Although the symphony was slow to enter the orchestral repertoire, it is now considered one of his greatest works. It is conducted here by Andris Nelsons, the recently appointed Principal Conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
