When Boston Symphony Orchestra musicians are not on stage at Symphony Hall, half of them are across the street at NEC, teaching the next generation of orchestra players.

These BSO teachers also star in NEC concerts. And we're returning the favor with an Insight Series that adds context to BSO programs in February and March 2015.

At Symphony Hall, these feature "masterworks from the early 20th century, with special emphasis on composers associated with legendary Russian impresario Sergei Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes." The BSO is also "celebrating the orchestra's connection to this important repertoire through Serge Koussevitzky, who as BSO music director was among the first to introduce these composers' important works to American audiences."

Tonight's concert spotlights composers, all of whom had works choreographed by the Ballets Russes.

Soloist for the Prokofiev Piano Concerto,chosen by internal competition, is Kyle Orth '16 M.M., a student of Wha Kyung Byun.
