Dvořák's Symphony No. 8
Hannu Lintu, conductor
Angela Hewitt, piano
Einojuhani Rautavaara: Cantus Arcticus (BSO Premiere)
Beethoven: Piano Concerto No. 1
Dvořák: Symphony No. 8
Hannu Lintu is joined by a close collaborator, 2006 Gramophone “Artist of the Year” Angela Hewitt, to perform Beethoven’s joyful Piano Concerto No. 1. In a natural mode, the program opens with Finnish composer Rautavaara’s evocative blending of taped birdsong recorded at the Arctic Circle with symphony orchestra. Listen for the songs of birds and feel the sunlight warming the fields in Dvořák’s pastoral Eighth Symphony, which conjures country walks in his native land.
