Hannu Lintu & Emanuel Ax
For personal reasons, Robin Ticciati unfortunately had to cancel the concerts. He deeply regrets having to withdraw from his engagement at such short notice and looks forward to future projects with the orchestra. We are grateful and happy to welcome the Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu to the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. Instead of the Third Symphony by Sergei Rachmaninoff, Hannu Lintu will conduct the Second Symphony by Jean Sibelius in the second part of the programme.
Information about the programme
The highly regarded Polish-American pianist Emanuel Ax is returning to the BRSO. For more than five decades he has thrilled music-lovers all over the world both with his playing and his modest, warm-hearted demeanour. The works of Frédéric Chopin have been a mainstay of his career, and he has again deepened his grasp of this music during the covid lockdown. The nobility and brilliance of his tone provide the perfect prerequisites for the F-minor Concerto, written when Chopin was 19 years old. After the intermission, Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu will conduct the 2nd Symphony by Jean Sibelius.
