Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the embattled former head of the International Monetary Fund, attended two concerts at the Tanglewood Music Festival. Strauss-Kahn and his wife took in a recital by violinist Nikolaj Znaider and then returned the next evening to hear cellist Lynn Harrell play the Dvo?ák Concerto with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Kurt Masur.

Strauss-Kahn was arrested in early May on charges of trying to rape a housekeeper in a Manhattan hotel. He was put under house arrest, but this was lifted in early July, since when he has been able to travel freely, although he is not allowed to leave the US. The next court hearing in his case is set for 1 August.
