Violinist Angele Dubeau was the youngest student ever to receive a first prize in violin at Montreal Conservatory of Music. Her musical training and performing took her all over the world and, eventually, right back to Canada, where she founded her all-female string orchestra in 1997. You┬'ll hear them perform a Christmas Concerto on Sunday Baroque this weekend.

Sunday at the Symphony
with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
Any assessment of the Boston Symphony┬'s last half century would not be complete without acknowledging two principal guest conductors, Sir Colin Davis and Bernard Haitink. We relish some of their finest BSO collaborations. There┬'s also a BSO recording of the Shostakovich Symphony #6, arguably the finest the work has received.
