Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and
Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra
The 2016/2017 Season of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra and Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra has been crafted for the greatest possible variety of repertory, to demonstrate all the things that the two orchestras do best, and to showcase some extraordinary soloists, most of them appearing for the first time with the Philharmonic.
The soloists are as stunning an array as we have ever put together. Ya-Fei Chuang is a pianist of tremendous technique and deep musicianship, ideal for Rachmaninoff’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. One of the premiere cellists of the day, Zuill Bailey will bring his profound communicative ability to the subtle and rich textures of the Dutilleux concerto. The Boston Trio, playing the Beethoven Triple, is a local favorite made all the dearer to us by the recent addition of the BPO’s own Jonah Ellsworth as cellist. And In Mo Yang, who plays Sibelius with the BPYO, recently won the Paganini Competition. His playing will cause jaws to drop.
We are enormously excited by this uncommonly varied array of works and the brilliant soloists who will be joining us. We look forward to your joining us as well!
