Come mid-to-late August, classical aficionados are grateful for the cornucopia of musical riches the Boston Symphony bestows to rapt audiences within the incomparably bucolic setting that is Tanglewood. Many of those superlative concerts will reside in our collective memory.   During this penultimate week of the Tanglewood Festival, the spotlight will focus on a range of classical and popular fare in varied genres: from the complete piano works of Brahms performed by the magnificent pianist Garrick Ohlsson, and the return of the beloved violinist Itzhak Perlman, to a celebratory full evening of music by the masterful composer John Williams, and a remembrance of the glories of Broadway
