Now that Seiji Ozawa hass been added to the 2016 Tanglewood schedule, here is another look at photos from Maestro Ozawa’s 2002 Tanglewood farewell press conference.
On Friday afternoon July 12, 2002, at the start of a weekend of special programs in celebration of his 29 year tenure with the BSO, Maestro Ozawa met with the press just outside the Koussevitsky Music Shed, where these photos were taken. By the 2002 season, he was music director emeritus; his last concert at Tanglewood as music director was Salome on Aug. 8, 2001.
