Music at Tanglewood! I have wonderful memories of my visit to Tanglewood many years ago, when I first came to the USA.
So let me tell you that this is still a major site for music performance during the summer. Here are details:
Today, July 19th at 2:30 PM, two major British artists—one at the top of his career, the other in early maturity—perform with the Boston Symphony Orchestra: Neville Marriner, the legendary original conductor of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, directs two Mozart symphonies, the “Haffner” and the “Linz”.
Also on the same concert is the Schumann Piano Concerto, with the poetic British pianist Paul Lewis out front. I always enjoy Mr. Lewis’ playing, and very fond of his interpretations of the music of Schubert.
Here is Paul Lewis – Franz Schubert/ Impromptu no. 2: [youtube id=”en47cW11-UY” width=”600″ height=”340″ position=”left”]
And next, here is the Piano Sonata in G major, op.78 D.894, “Fantaisie”: [youtube id=”E1ix1OcCnYs” width=”600″ height=”340″ position=”left”]
