Edgar Meyer and Joshua Bell Debut new Double Concerto at Tanglewood

This year Tanglewood celebrates its 75th anniversary while Joshua and Edgar Meyer are celebrating the second commission Edgar has written for Joshua. The Edgar Meyer Double Concerto made its debut performed by Joshua and Edgar, conductor Michael Stern and the Boston Symphony Orchestra with additional performances set for Aspen and The Hollywood Bowl. Noted Boston Classical Review: “…the 27-minute work — given its world premiere at Tanglewood Saturday night with Joshua Bell, conductor Michael Stern and the Boston Symphony Orchestra — virtually defies you not to like it. As is Meyer’s style, the concerto is cast in a lyrical, basically tonal style that seems a throwback to the neo-romantic modernism of Samuel Barber (whose School for Scandal Overture opened the program).”
