Tune in to watch the performance of Williams' Violin Concerto No. 2, previously recorded at Tanglewood this past summer. In it, the legendary multiple-Oscar-winning composer and Boston Pops Conductor Laureate John Williams leads the Boston Symphony Orchestra and virtuoso violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter.

 

 

 

The performance is part of the PBS series, "Great Performances" — one of the only continuing primetime performance showcase on American television, providing diverse programming of classical music, opera, popular song, musical theater, dance, drama, and performance documentaries.

"Great Performances" is available for streaming with broadcast on all station-branded PBS platforms, including PBS.org and the PBS Video App.
