ABOUT THIS CONCERT
This tour marks the Mahler Chamber Orchestra’s exciting debut with pianist Daniil Trifonov. In this programme, Frédéric Chopin’s piano concertos – in the version by Mikhail Pletnev, who will be conducting – are complemented by Mieczysław Karłowicz’s Serenade for Strings. While all three pieces were written during the composers’ studies, they played an important part in ensuring Chopin’s and Karłowicz’s place among the most important composers in Polish history.
This concert marks the beginning of a partnership between the MCO and Heidelberger Frühling: in the upcoming years, the MCO will be appearing annually at this spring festival.
