Communal Concert with Daniel Harding
Academies of the Concertgebouw orchestra and the BRSO
For years Mariss Jansons was the principal conductor of both the BRSO and the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra. If gifted young musicians from two academies now assemble in Munich for a concert, they do so in memory of this great conductor, who left an indelible imprint on both orchestras. Jansons had a firm commitment to talented young orchestral musicians, and the idea of the academy continues in his spirit, helping graduates to find their way into professional orchestras. Now, for the first time since their initial exchange of 2019, the two academies reunite in a concert that straddles the boundaries of Germany and the Netherlands. Wagner’s “Siegfried Idyll”, George Benjamin’s modernist take on Purcell and Richard Strauss’s Suite from “Der Bürger als Edelmann” give these young musicians ample opportunity to display their prowess under the baton of Daniel Harding.
