When conductor Andrés Orozco-Estrada met the Gothenburg Symphony for the first time in 2013, it was a raging success. Göteborgs-Posten’s review called him “a phenomenal young artist… musically absolutely splendid,” and following concerts in Stockholm and Copenhagen, a second invitation was highly anticipated. But the rest of the world had also discovered Andrés Orozco-Estrada, and as he is music director in Houston and chief conductor in Frankfurt, his schedule has been full.
So we’re particularly pleased to welcome him back again in Richard Strauss’ splendidly virtuosic A Hero’s Life, a wonderfully self-obsessed hero’s tale in which Richard Strauss depicts friends and enemies, fights and peace with a great deal of humour.
