ABOUT THIS CONCERT
5 October at 20:00 on Takt1
The music of Mozart under the baton of Conductor Laureate Daniel Harding played a key role in the early development of the Mahler Chamber Orchestra’s sound and musical identity. Ten years ago, in the fall of 2006, Daniel Harding conducted this very programme with the MCO on a tour with concerts in Germany, Taiwan and Japan. On this tour with the last three Mozart symphonies, the Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Harding revisit this very special repertoire.
Daniel Harding has played a pivotal part in the history of the MCO: his role has evolved from Principal Guest Conductor to Music Director, Principal Conductor and finally to his current position as Conductor Laureate. Daniel Harding has helped to shape the sound and characteristics of the orchestra; he continues to work closely and regularly with the MCO.
This concert sees the MCO returning to Dortmund for the third time this year, which attests to the close working relationship between the orchestra and Konzerthaus Dortmund. The MCO performed in Dortmund most recently as part of the Zeitinsel George Benjamin series in March 2016, which featured two chamber music concerts highlighting the composer’s oeuvre and which culminated in the premiere of the semi-staged concert performance of Benjamin’s opera, Written on Skin, with the composer at the podium.
