The London Symphony Orchestra

Art from skill

05 April 2022, Elbphilharmonie, Great Hall

"If you are planning to put a really difficult trumpet concerto on the programme, there is really only one man for the job," says an introduction to an English orchestra. It is clear who we are talking about here: Håkan Hardenberger, who has developed into a kind of universal trumpet genius during his career. His repertoire ranges from Haydn to Piazzolla to contemporary works. A piece of recent music by the Scottish composer and professor at the Royal Academy of Music Helen Grime is also on the programme in his concert with the London Symphony Orchestra. Under the baton of its equally universally gifted first guest conductor François-Xavier Roth, the top London orchestra completes its residency at the Elbphilharmonie with lush orchestral works by Richard Strauss, once again putting all the musicians to sonorous use.

Programme:
Richard Strauss "Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks" op. 28 / TrV 171 "Death and Transfiguration" op. 24 / TrV 158
Helen Grime Trumpet Concerto
Joel Järventausta "Sunfall“

Cast:

François-Xavier Roth, conductor
