Host

The Boston Philharmonic opens its doors yet again to our Groupmuse community members! Tickets are available for a fraction of the list price: $20 a seat, down from $65!

Come a bit early at 6:45 for a free lecture about the program given by the renowned conductor of the Boston Phil, Benjamin Zander check him out at his TED Talk; he really is so fun to listen to!

Here's what he has to say about the upcoming program:

"Finally, to honor Anton Bruckner’s 200th anniversary, we turn to his final work, the unfinished Ninth Symphony. This heaven-storming, stubborn, sublime work is as deep and ecstatic an experience as music has to offer. Intense beauty radiates from every bar, leaving everyone deeply moved, even people who might think that they are allergic to Bruckner’s music. From our very beginning as an orchestra, we have returned to Bruckner as a haven for the soul. Do not miss it!

The most natural companion for this Bruckner symphony is music of Mozart. Not the sublime, conversational Mozart, but the dark and romantic Mozart, as in the C-minor Piano Concerto. Our soloist is one of the most beloved guests of recent years, Alessandro Deljavan, who mesmerized our audiences with his performances of Brahms's Second Piano Concerto in 2019.

Alessandro’s performance of Brahms's 2nd concerto was as great as any I have ever heard, so one wonders why he hasn’t reached household name status. The critics agree: Richard Dyer, former Chief critic of The Boston Globe wrote "Alessandro Deljavan is a keyboard virtuoso with an equally virtuoso brain, ear and imagination. He plays in a manner that is simultaneously commanding and questioning, shocking and illuminating." and Scott Cantrell the Chief Music critic of the Dallas Morning News wrote “Deljavan played with jaw-dropping virtuosity and heart-stopping eloquence.” I had to have him back to work on something else. It will be thrilling to hear those qualities unleashed in Mozart’s most turbulent and dramatic piano concerto."

Groupmuse community members with ADA accessibility seating requirements are asked to email [email protected] so that we can properly accommodate you.
