For the final concerts of the 2008-09 BSO season, the illustrious English conductor Sir Colin Davis brings the monumental Te Deum of Berlioz, a composer with whose music Sir Colin has long and profound experience. Sir Colin led performances of this grand, nearly hour-long work for three choruses, organ, and orchestra at Tanglewood and Symphony Hall in 1973. Tenor Matthew Polenzani, who has sung in recent BSO performances of Berlioz’s Requiem and Roméo et Juliette, joins the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and the PALS Children’s Chorus for these performances. The elegant English pianist Imogen Cooper is soloist in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 25, written in Vienna in 1786.
