Tanglewood celebrates 75 years with a few firsts
This is shaping up to be a season of firsts as the Boston Symphony Orchestra opens its 75th anniversary season at Tanglewood Friday. Led by conductor Christoph von Dohnanyi, the BSO will replicate the first-ever Tanglewood concert in 1937. And on July 14, the orchestra’s music director laureate John Williams will present the first Tanglewood Medal to conductor Seiji Ozawa. (Ozawa will not be present.) Guest artists that night will include pianist Emanuel Ax, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, pianist Peter Serkin, and singer James Taylor.
