Event has already taken place. Gothenburg Symphony, Andrés Orozco-Estrada conductor, Lawrence Power viola
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 Helsinki, 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.
Another “phenomenal artist” is violist Lawrence Power, a leading viola soloist. James MacMillan’s resonant viola concerto was dedicated to him, and after the first performance with the London Philharmonic in 2014, the Guardian wrote “A major contribution to the repertory… Lawrence Power looked as if he adored playing it.”
