    Default Tanglewood 2013 - Which Sunday afternoon?

    Trying to choose a Sunday 2:30pm Boston Symphony at Tanglewood performance to attend as a family, and/or one to drag my piano students to.

    Anyone have recommendations? And is anyone else planning to go to any of these?

    July 7 - Boston Pops/Vince Gill (giving this one a miss, I think)

    July 14 - Stravinsky Suite from Pulcinella, Haydn Cello Concerto no. 1 with Lynn Harrell, Beethoven Symphony no. 8

    July 21 - Vivaldi Concerto in A minor for two violins and strings, Vivaldi Concerto in B flat for violin, cello and strings, Bach concerto no. 2 for violin and strings, Telemann Concerto in G for viola and strings, Bach Brandenburg no. 2. Soloists are Pinchas Zuckerman (violin), Elizabeth Rowe (flute), John Ferrillo (oboe), Thomas Rolfs (trumpet), Malcolm Lowe (violin) and Amanda Forsythe (cello); not sure who is playing on what piece.

    July 28 - Dvorak Carnival Overture, Prokofiev Piano Concerto no. 3 with Garrick Ohlsson, Dvorak Symphony no. 9 <-- might be what we pick as I love the Prokofiev concertos and am married to a Dvorak fan

    Aug 4 - Stravinsky Fireworks, Dvorak Cello Concerto with Yo-Yo Ma, Stravinsky Rite of Spring

    Aug 11 - All Beethoven - Overture to Creatures of Prometheus, Piano concerto no. 2 with Christian Zacharias, Symphony no. 6

    Aug 18 is of course my all-time favorite piano concerto with Emanuel Ax + my wife's favorite symphony and we're going to be out of town (Mozart Concerto no. 9, Mahler no. 1)

    Aug 25 - Beethoven Symphony no. 9 with Erin Wall, Tamara Mumford, Joseph Kaiser and John Relyea

    Sept 1 - more unspecified Pops

    July 28 and Aug 18 would be my choices too.
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    I often avoid Yo Yo Ma concerts because it's such a zoo- too many people AND they don't know not to applaud between movements. Still, I might hit that August 4 concert. Fireworks is a minor Stravinsky composition, but I have never heard it live. It's too bad they are doing Dvorak 9 again - great piece but it's overplayed. I just heard it a few weeks back. If they were doing 5, 6, or 7 I would definitey go. Have not heard Prokofiev 3rd concerto in a while. I missed it because of Alvin Ailey - that jerk!!

    I'd go with July 28 also. What did you choose in the end?

    Wow, that was everything we'd hoped for and more. I am a big Garrick Ohlsson fan now.

    I was there too. Had to go for the Prokofiev 3rd. You don't hear that often enough in concert.
