BSO and Morlot present rich musical feast
This week’s Boston Symphony Orchestra program, featuring guest conductor Ludovic Morlot, had former music director James Levine’s fingerprints all over it. There was a substantial modernist first course (John Harbison’s Symphony No. 4, restarting the BSO’s two-season survey of his symphonies), then, appropriate for the day after Thanksgiving, rich leftovers: Ravel’s “Daphnis et Chloé’’ Suite no. 2, which the BSO played in 2010, and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 1, heard at Tanglewood last summer. But Morlot put his own stamp on the music.
