DCR’s Hatch Shell
Boston Landmarks Orchestra | Christopher Wilkins, conductor
The Esplanade resounds with rhythms and dances of many ages and cultures. The Swordfishers features replicas of ancient stone instruments fashioned by a New England culture that thrived thousands of years ago. The Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists marks the orchestra’s first performance of music by Philip Glass, one of America’s most influential composers. Rachmaninoff’s final work—the brilliant and rhapsodic Symphonic Dances—caps the night.
