The Boston Chamber Symphony (BCS) concert will feature beloved, contrasting works for chamber orchestra that showcase the brilliant talent of the BCS member-soloists.

This season closer features masterworks that exhibit the range and technical mastery of the ensemble. Bartók’s “Romanian Folk Dances” includes seven mini-movements, with melodies inspired by Transylvanian folk tunes performed by solo violin, clarinet, and piccolo. Stravinsky’s “Pulcinella Suite” was adapted from Stravinsky’s eponymous ballet, which was inspired by the traditional commedia dell’arte and featured original sets and costumes by Pablo Picasso. BCS celebrates the work’s Boston roots, as Stravinsky’s “Suite” was originally premiered by the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1922. Anchoring the concert is Mozart’s “Symphony No. 40.” Dubbed the “Great G Minor Symphony,” and one of only two symphonies Mozart wrote in a minor key, this evocative work is one of his most-admired compositions for its emotional range and dramatic intensity.

Music director Avlana Eisenberg will conduct, and a reception with the performers will follow the program.
