JoAnn Falletta Conducts Haydn

This performance replaces Beethoven’s Emperor, originally scheduled Saturday, February 20, and Sunday, February 21.
*Originally titled “Dramatic Reflections”

Composed as a memorial to his countryman, Arensky’s lyrical work reinvents a theme from Tchaikovsky’s “16 Songs for Children,” while fellow compatriot Shostakovich prophesied his chamber piece, colored by the WWII destruction of Dresden, would be his requiem. The program concludes with the yearning of Haydn’s dissonant and dramatic Symphony No. 44.

BPOnDemand performances are available on-demand for 30 days following their premiere. The series is available to all current 2020-21 season subscribers for FREE, as well as those patrons near and far who wish to purchase a virtual ticket on a concert-by-concert basis for just $10.
