“Klassik airleben at home” with the Gewandhausorchester
The Gewandhausorchester will stream the best recordings from the 2018 and 2019 concerts of Leipzig’s largest classical event, the “Klassik airleben” on Saturday, June 27, at 20:00 via www.klassik-airleben.de. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the famous open-air concert at the picturesque Rosental was canceled this year.
The stream presents Andris Nelsons at the helm of the Gewandhausorchester, conducting great Italian opera duets and arias featuring America’s foremost baritone, Thomas Hampson, and star soprano Kristine Opolais. Additionally, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet performs hits of American film music. Paint Arkona will moderate this special event. Catch the stream via the Gewandhausorchester, available for 24 hours.
