The Boston Philharmonic has an extraordinary season of masterpieces, rare musical pairings, and unmatched soloists just for you! Join Maestro Zander and the BPO for our 39th season of fantastic concert experiences; hear profound and moving discussions about the music, and marvel as Maestro Zander coaxes the very best from Boston’s finest musicians.

This year the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra has set yet another ambitious musical agenda featuring a heavy dose of Russian, English, and American music, while continuing our love affair with Germany’s giant of the Romantic period, Gustav Mahler. Our season begins with Pulitzer-prize winning composer and Boston native, John Harbison and his Symphony No. 3 followed by the Grammy-award winning violist Kim Kashkashian who has graciously agreed to come out of retirement to lend her artistry to a soon-to-be unforgettable performance of Berlioz’s Harold in Italy. After we conquer Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 in the spring, the season finally climaxes with the heart-stopping beauty and power of our Symphony Hall finale, Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius featuring tenor Robert Murray in the title role.

Not to be outdone, the Boston Philharmonic Youth Orchestra has set forth an equally ambitious journey on par with their professional counterparts. We open with another star of Boston’s classical music scene, the pianist and musical prodigy George Li performing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. A Boston Philharmonic season wouldn’t be complete without a performance of Mahler. This time the BPYO is trading the ferocity of Symphony No. 6 for the complex and profound Symphony No. 9 – a specialty of Maestro Zander’s for which he was previously nominated for a Grammy award for “Best Classical Performance”. Finally, we end our season with a showcase of classical favorites ranging from the rambunctious to the wistful, featuring one of our favorite soloists, Zuill Bailey, performing Elgar’s beloved Cello Concerto in E minor.
