Tonight in The Shed at Tanglewood, Andris Nelsons will conduct a performance of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 2, and closes the program with Ravel’s complete “Daphnis and Chloé,” featuring the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, James Burton, conductor. In between these two works, Paul Lewis, returning to Tanglewood for his eighth summer in a row, takes center stage to perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 12 in A.
Paul Lewis is internationally regarded as one of the leading musicians of his generation and as one of the world’s foremost interpreters of the central European classical repertoire.
In addition to his performance in The Shed tonight, Lewis will perform a recital of music by Haydn, Brahms, and Beethoven at Ozawa Hall on July 30.
