ABOUT THIS CONCERT
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.
The 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.
