Leipzig Week in Boston
Saturday, February 10 (encore Monday, February 18), 2018
An unprecedented alliance between the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is launched through music by Bach, Schumann, Shepherd, and Mendelssohn.
The Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra already share common threads of history, and now Andris Nelsons forms another link as the Music Director of both orchestras. To celebrate, the BSO performs music by Leipzig composers, part of an entire week of special events. To learn more, visit the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
