The Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) opened its 75th summer season at Tanglewood in Lenox, MA, Friday night.

The program replicated the very first concert that BSO gave at Tanglewood under Serge Koussevitsky's baton in August 1937.

On Friday, guest conductor Cristoph von Dohnanyi, a noted Beethoven specialist and the Cleveland Orchestra's former music director, led the all-Beethoven program - the "Leonore" Overture No. 3 and fifth and sixth symphonies.

The classical Beethoven program on Friday will be followed by the world premiere of Edgar Meyer’s “Double Concerto for Violin, Double Bass, and Orchestra” tonight. Conductor Michael Stern will lead the contemporary repertoire with world-renowned violin star Joshua Bell.
