(LENOX, Mass.) – The Fellows of the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra will offer the world premiere of a new work for French horn and string orchestra by the dynamic contemporary composer Osvaldo Golijov (led by TMC Conducting Fellow Marzena Diakun), with principal horn James Sommerville of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, in Ozawa Hall on Monday, July 13, 2015, at 8pm.

(Read an interview/essay I wrote on Golijov here.)

The program, directed by former BSO assistant conductor Ludovic Morlot, now music director of the Seattle Symphony, also includes Hindemith’s Konzertmusik for strings and brass (led by TMC Fellow Ruth Reinhardt), which was commissioned for the BSO’s 50th anniversary; Debussy’s vibrant Images for orchestra and Wagner’s atmospheric Prelude to Parsifal.

The next night, jazz great Wynton Marsalis — trumpeter, Pulitzer Prize-winning composer, and nine-time Grammy Award winner — leads the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra at Ozawa Hall.
