Boston Symphony Orchestra
Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos conducting
Boston 2013 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Symphony Hall, Boston, MA; March 2, 2013; broadcast on WCRB HD-FM Boston March 10, 2013. Excellent audio.

Thanks to zootype who recorded and shared the show at Dime.

“With Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos on the podium, the sensational Chinese pianist Lang Lang makes his BSO debut in Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2. Two works tied to the history of the Boston Symphony Orchestra bookend the program: Hindemith’s “Konzertmusik for Strings and Brass”, commissioned by Serge Koussevitzky and the BSO on the occasion of the orchestra’s 50th anniversary in 1931, and Bartók’s ingeniously kaleidoscopic “Concerto for Orchestra”, a Koussevitzky commission premiered by the BSO in 1944.” -
