ABOUT THIS CONCERT
tour begins in Bari, where the Mahler Chamber Orchestra will be
performing for the first time. The orchestra then returns to Heidelberg
for the final concert of the Heidelberger Frühling music festival.
Having opened this year’s edition with a performance in March, the MCO
will be continuing its partnership with the festival for many years to
come. Moving on to Spain, the orchestra will perform in Bilbao, Zaragoza
and Barcelona, where the tour concludes with a reunion of the MCO, the
Cor de Cambra del Palau de la Música and Orfeó Català for a performance
of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony – a work that these protagonists performed
together in May 2016, also under the baton of Daniele Gatti.
This three-country tour, featuring works of Beethoven and Schumann with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra's Artistic Advisor Daniele Gatti, includes a new point on the MCO map, a musical reunion, and the continuation of a long-term partnership for the orchestra.
