RICCARDO MINASI DEBUTS WITH SYMPHONIEORCHESTER DES BAYERISCHEN RUNDFUNKS
Riccardo Minasi makes his debut with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks on 24 and 25 September at Munich’s Herkulessaal.
For his first collaboration with the orchestra, Minasi embarks on a programme of Viennese classics, conducting Haydn’s Symphony in G Major, Hob. I:88 and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 C Major, op. 15. Igor Levit, BRSO’s artist-in-residence for the 2020 – 21 season, takes the solo part in Beethoven’s concerto.
The concert will be broadcast live on radio BR-KLASSIK on 25 September 20:30.
Earlier in September Minasi led the 2020 – 21 season opening concert in Salzburg with the Mozarteum Orchester in a programme with works by Shostakovich, Haydn and Respighi, and reunited with Ensemble Resonanz in Hamburg for an exuberant performance of Beethoven’s Symphony no.5 at the Elbphilharmonie.
