    Andris Nelsons conducts Tchaikovsky, Dean and Stravinsky featuring Hakan Hardenberger

    Presented by at Symphony Hall

    November 13 - November 18, 2017


    Andris Nelsons conducts Tchaikovsky, Dean and Stravinsky featuring Hakan Hardenberger

    Andris Nelsons is joined here by another close collaborator, masterful Swedish trumpet virtuoso Hakan Hardenberger, for the American premiere of Brett Dean's trumpet concerto Dramatis personae. The Australian-born, Grawemeyer Award-winning composer wrote this concerto for Hardenberger, who gave its first performance in August 2013 in Austria. The idea of the title refers to the soloist's position as dramatic protagonist. Inspired by one of literature's most recognizable protagonists, Tchaikovsky's symphonic poem?Hamlet, which opens the program, is one of the composer's several intensely Romantic works based on Shakespeare. Stravinsky's groundbreaking, still-thrilling ballet score?The Rite of Spring, an orchestral tour de force, closes these concerts.
