Michael Tilson Thomas conducts Tilson Thomas, Rachmaninoff and Mahler

August 12 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

$34 – $114

San Francisco Symphony Music Director and former BSO Assistant Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas returns to Tanglewood, where he won the Koussevitzky Music Prize as a student of Bernstein’s in 1969. To open the program, he leads the BSO in his own Agnegram, a 1998 work that is alternately jazzy, elegant, humorous, and direct. Brilliant young Russian pianist Igor Levit then takes center stage for Rachmaninoff’s virtuosic and glittering Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Closing the concert is Mahler’s at times brooding, at times vigorously energetic Symphony No. 1. Bernstein’s championing of Mahler’s symphonies was a big factor in making his music a staple of the orchestral repertoire.
