Federico Cortese, conductor Gleb Ivanov, piano
The Longwood Symphony Orchestra joins the Japan Disaster Relief Fund-Boston in remembering those affected by the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in the Tohoku region of Japan. The program opens with Ame Nimo (Even the Rain), which Berklee College of Music professor Tsunenori “Lee” Abe wrote in remembrance of those who perished in the disaster. The LSO is proud to be a part of the 35-orchestra consortium that commissioned Sidereus (Starry Messenger) by Boston composer Osvaldo Golijov in honor of Henry Fogel, former President of the League of American Orchestras. Guest conductor Federico Cortese also leads the LSO in two works of undeniable bravura and heroism, Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with brilliant Russian pianist Gleb Ivanov, and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3.
