HarrisonParrott Touring takes a look back on a busy winter…
November saw the Iceland Symphony Orchestra and their Principal Guest Conductor Daníel Bjarnason tour Munich, Salzburg and Berlin along with pianist Víkingur Ólafsson and hornist Radovan Vlatković. Highlights of the tour include Bjarnason conducting the powerful Processions, his second piano concerto written for Ólafsson and the final concert in Berlin led the Sounds of Iceland festival to a tremendous finale in the Berlin Konzerthaus.
Choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui led his Eastman dance company to Hong Kong to perform the intricate production of Puz/zle.
What better place to tour at Christmas time than Moscow, where we saw French orchestra Les Siècles debut in Russia with François-Xavier Roth and the dazzling Alice Sara Ott.
January took us across the seas to Colombia for the 14thCartagena International Music Festival where the Camerata RCO were resident orchestra. We saw concerts, recitals and masterclasses take place over 9 days in beautiful settings such as the Adolfo Mejia Theatre and the Santa Teresa Chapel.
Meanwhile in Europe the Luzerner Sinfonieorchester travelled to Utrecht to perform with their Chief Conductor James Gaffigan and Camerata RCO later travelled to Bologna for a concert as part of the Fondazione Musica Insieme season.
HarrisonParrott were delighted to manage the UK choir Tenebrae’s anticipated return tour to Australia since their first tour in 2017. They performed in Melbourne and had two performances at the Sydney Festival conducted by Nigel Short.
Finally it wouldn’t be a year in touring at HarrisonParrott without the legendary Kodo who brought their One Earth Tour 2020: Legacy project to Europe in February and March. Eleven concerts in Croatia, France, the UK and their debut in Poland saw the Japanese taiko performing arts ensemble take their European tour by storm.
