Christopher Warren-Green Tampere success and Messiah performances
Christopher Warren-Green closes 2017 with two performances of Messiah with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra where he is in his eighth season as Music Director. Very much known for his interpretation of Handel’s iconic work he has performed it with orchestras such as the Toronto, Detroit, St Louis and Houston symphony orchestras along with the Philadelphia and Minnesota orchestras.
Warren-Green recently had a hugely successful debut with the Tampere Philharmonic. Harri Hautala of the Tampere Aamulehti said:
“What a concert! The British maestro inspired the Tampere Philharmonic into a warm glow and wonderful solos […] under the baton of Christopher Warren-Green ”En saga” by Sibelius grew into a magical story. The hall was filled with a warm, colourful and wonderfully sparkling sound, which exactly corresponded with the mystical and even tempestuous story of ”En saga”. I can’t remember the last time I heard such a lively and dramatic ”En saga”. Warren-Green allowed the few big climaxes of the work erupt thunderously, and at the same time he tended the continuity in the more understated sections.” *****
The performances of works by Sibelius, Stravinsky and Bartok earned Warren-Green immediate re-invitations to conduct the orchestra in both the 2018/19 and 2019/20 seasons.
