Blast off with BCO’s season-opener, including Mozart’s last and grandest symphony, nicknamed “Jupiter” for its unusual breadth. Our star concertmaster Madeline Adkins again steps in front of the orchestra to perform Prokofiev’s brilliant, colorful second violin concerto. And did you know that Bartok traveled from village to village throughout Romania recording the rich variety of folk music, using one of the first Edison wax cylinders? One of the results is the tuneful set of folk dances that opens the program.
