This was an excellent NSO evening. Who could imagine a standing ovation for an organ solo (Paul Jacobs performing Bach BWV 543) -- but it really merited it.
Mendelssohn's "Lobgesang" Symphony, with the 140-voice Washington chorus, was a powerful second half complement.
Program (subject to change):
Poulenc — Organ Concerto in G minor
Bach — Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV 543
Mendelssohn — Symphony No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 52 “Lobgesang”
The concert is scheduled to run approximately two hours.
The Thursday, October 2nd performance is followed by a free discussion with the artists and NSO Director of Artistic Planning Nigel Boon.
