Russian conductor Andrey Boreyko returned to the Philharmonic – 2 weeks this year – to conduct a pair of works based on Hans Christian Andersen tales and Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto with Principal Bassoon Judith LeClair.
- Stravinsky – Song of the Nightingale: Symphonic Poem
- Mozart – Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major, K. 191/186e
- Zemlinsky – The Little Mermaid, Fantasie in Three Movements for Large Orchestra after Tales of Hans Christian Andersen, Op. 18
There is an interesting CNN interview online with Judith Leclair. Interesting story of her bassoon.
