The Boston University College of Fine Arts celebrated Professor Roman Totenberg’s 100th birthday at Boston’s Symphony Hall on Sunday, November 21, 2010. The concert featured the Boston University Symphony Orchestra, conductor David Hoose, and violinist Peter Zazofsky, and included performances of Beethoven’s Prometheus Overture, Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 2, and Elgar’s Symphony No. 1 in A-flat. A tribute was hosted by national political commentator Cokie Roberts, and former students Mira Wang and Na Sun surprised Professor Totenberg with a special performance of Bruce Dukov’s wonderful arrangement of Happy Birthday.
With help from our friends at Soundmirror, CFA Audio was on hand to engineer the concert — the first orchestral performance in Symphony Hall’s history to be streamed live on the internet! The concert is also available as a high-quality, audio-only CD from CFA Audio. Contact us if you’d like to order copy.
