Autumn Tour with the Gewandhausorchester
This month, Andris Nelsons and the Gewandhausorchester embark on their autumn tour, with distinguished soloists cellist Gautier Capuçon and pianist Rudolf Buchbinder. Nelsons leads the ensemble in two thrilling programs featuring works by Mahler, Schumann, Wagner, Mendelssohn, and Schubert.
Concert appearances with Gautier Capuçon include October 19 at the Vienna’s Musikverein, October 23 at Lugano Arte e Cultura in Switzerland, and October 24 at the Liederhalle Stuttgart. The program begins with Mahler’s Blumine, and Mr. Capuçon interprets Schumann’s Cello Concerto. Completing the program is Wagner’s Overture to Der fliegende Höllander and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 3, also known as his “Scottish Symphony.” Two of the works premiered with the Gewandhausorchester: Schumann’s Cello Concerto with cellist Ludwig Ebert in 1860, and Mendelssohn’s Third Symphony, which he conducted in 1842.
Rudolf Buchbinder joins the ensemble for performances on October 20 at Vienna’s Musikverein and October 21 at Lugano Arte e Cultura. Nelsons conducts Schubert’s last symphony and the kaleidoscopic Piano Concerto No. 1 by Beethoven, entrusted to the expert hands of Mr. Buchbinder.
