Sweet Sorrow on the Esplanade


Boston Landmarks Orchestra’s  Christopher Wilkins will be leading another ambitious concert Wednesday at 7:00 at the Hatch Shell, once again offering dramatic and rewarding music that reaches out and rewards with fully fleshed-out repertoire on a theme of mutual understanding. Five works (or movements thereof) will collectively make the case: Verdi Nabucco Overture, Florence Price Ethiopia’s Shadow in America, Borys Lyatoshynsky Symphony No. 3 in B minor, Peace Shall Defeat War, Sibelius Finlandia, David Amram Symphony: Songs of the Soul, Tchaikovsky Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy.

Let this be the watchword: Playing in an orchestra intelligently is the best school for democracy, according to  Daniel Barenboim. Within his West-Eastern Divan Orchestra. Young Arab and Israeli musicians work together to promote mutual understanding.

BMInt offers readers Wilkins’s extensive Podium Notes which explicate a concert celebrating Music and Reconciliation. Have a read [HERE] before concert time.
