On Sunday, August 13, young Israeli conductor Lahav Shani makes his BSO debut on a program featuring Tanglewood regular, violinist Joshua Bell in Mozart’s energetic and playful Violin Concerto No. 1, written in 1773 when the composer was just 17. Mr. Shani also lead the BSO in the overture to Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro and Schubert’s Symphony in C, The Great. The composer’s ultimate symphony (in both senses of the word: it is his biggest and last work in the genre), the C major was famously praised for its “heavenly length” by Robert Schumann, who observed also that it “transports us into a world we cannot recall ever having been before.”
