Favorites & Friends: A Celebration of 20 Years of JoAnn Falletta

Join the celebration as our lady of honor, Maestro JoAnn Falletta, takes the podium for her official 20th season with the BPO. JoAnn has handpicked a sparkling repertoire, including Saint-Saëns’ Capriccio and Rondo played by violin virtuoso Tianwa Yang, whom JoAnn conducted in her United States premiere performance; Rossini’s Overture to Semiramide; Liszt’s powerfully foreboding Totentanz, with JoAnn’s friend William Wolfram on piano; and of course, a spotlight on our own musicians, with a work that will feature Principal Cello Roman Mekinulov, along with our new concertmaster. Strauss’ warmhearted Der Rosenkavalier, a Falletta favorite, rounds out a magical musical evening.
