Dima Slobodeniouk makes his debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
This Sunday, Dima Slobodeniouk will give his debut performance with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at Tanglewood, the orchestra’s famed summer home and one of the world’s most beloved music festivals. The conductor will lead the orchestra in 19th-century Polish Romantic composer Wieniawski’s brilliant and virtuosic Violin Concerto No. 2, featuring American soloist Joshua Bell. The program opens with Borodin’s powerful Polovtsian Dances from his opera Prince Igor, and concludes with the Symphony No. 5 by Prokofiev, which he wrote in 1944 amidst the chaos of World War II.
Further highlights this season are Slobodeniouk’s debuts with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam, Rotterdam Philharmonic, ORF Radio-Symphonieorchester Wien at the Musikverein, Bayerisches Staatsorchester Munich, Minnesota, Seattle and Milwaukee Symphony Orchestras, NHK Symphony Orchestra and Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra as well as West Australian Symphony Orchestra.
