Grief, Faith, and Transcendence, with Lintu and the Boston Symphony

Conductor Hannu Lintu leans back in a light brown leather chair and looks to a window out of frame. He's wearing a black long-sleeve shirt and he has short, silver hair. There's a piano behind him covered in sheet music. On the floor, there's a large violet rug, upon which his dog lays.

Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu leads the BSO in Peter Lieberson’s Drala, inspired by the Tibetan Buddhist term describing life-source, as well as Schumann’s brooding and majestic Symphony No. 4. Leonidas Kavakos returns to Symphony Hall to perform Alban Berg’s final finished piece, the Violin Concerto, written in response to the death of Alma Mahler's daughter.
