In Thursday’s (2/1) WAMC (Northeast U.S.), Josh Landes writes, “Tanglewood in the Berkshires has announced its Summer 2024 season. Featuring Andris Nelsons leading the Boston Symphony Orchestra, appearances from classical music legends like Yo-Yo Ma and Joshua Bell, and popular artists like Kool and the Gang and the Pretenders, the schedule runs from late June through August. The season marks the 50th year of James Taylor’s July 4th performances at Tanglewood, and will see the popular John Williams’ Film Night expand to two nights … BSO Vice President for Artistic Planning Anthony Fogg: It’s a very what we might call robust season ahead. Eight weeks of programming with the Boston Symphony. The first month, the month of July, features our music director, Andris Nelsons, and some great programs, and we’ve got an all-Beethoven program with violinist Hilary Hahn to open the BSO part of the season … Andris is celebrating the 150th birthday of Tanglewood founder Serge Koussevitzky … Tanglewood is blessed to work with a number of the really great, great artists of our time….There are some artists who are new to us…. A very, very rich mixture of beloved classics, new works, artists we know so well, and some new names.”
