The Boston Symphony Orchestra opens the 75th anniversary season of the Tanglewood Festival by re-creating the festival's very first concert, from August 5, 1937. This all-Beethoven program features the “Leonore” Overture No. 3, the Symphony No. 6 in F Major (“Pastoral”), and the Symphony No. 5 in C Minor.
Back in 1937, Serge Koussevitzky conducted the Boston Symphony; this time around it is the highly respected Christoph von Dohnányi.
Hear the concert live starting at 8 pm.
