We’re busy working on two 25 minute videos. 1. Ben’s pre-concert lecture for the Lutosławski and 2. the Lutosławski performance. Both were recorded on Sunday, February 26th.
Alexander Baillie, cello, recalls his first time hearing the Lutosławski Concerto for Cello and Orchestra in an interview where he also touches on his relationship with Benjamin Zander and some feelings about the piece.

Aristides Rivas, cello, provides a score to daily Boston while rehearsing Strauss’ “Ein Heldenleben” for our next concert.
In part one of the third series of the 2011-12 season, Pamela and Carmen share their experiences with our student ambassadors and how the program has developed over the course of the last year.

Pamela and I had the good fortune of interviewing Ben AND Martina yesterday afternoon about their process and why they love the Brahms Piano Concerto. Enjoy!
Pamela and I had the pleasure of sitting down with Tom Hill before the Sunday matinee last month. Watch the video to find out what he thinks about the progression of student players since the dawn of the Philharmonic.
In the final part of our video series for concert 1, The Inextinguishable Human Spirit, watch Marielisa Alvarez, a teacher from the Josiah Quincy Elementary School, describe how much her students enjoyed the concert and other great candid moments from the weekend. In two weeks, we’ll launch our second series, named after the second concert cycle, “Eternal Students.”
