Mahler Chamber Orchestra shines on their spanish tour
Mahler Chamber Orchestra and Daniele Gatti have shone on their recent spanish tour, which has included concerts at Sociedad Filarmónica de Bilbao, Auditorio de Zaragoza and Palau de la Música Catalana de Barcelona. In addition, the orchestra have moved in Barcelona with ‘Feel The Music’. This project invites deaf and hard-of-hearing children to discover music on their own terms.
Yuja Wang finished her spanish tour with Chamber Orchestra of Europe last Saturday 20th January. The tickets were sold out for the concert at L’Auditori in Barcelona before an unforgettable night. The audience enjoyed her brilliant piano performances (Beethoven’s ‘Piano Concerto No.1’, Chopin’s ‘Andante spianato et grande polonaise brillante’), conducting as well the orchestra in these pieces. The spectators also admired the works of Mendelssohn performed by the prestigious orchestra, conducted here by the concertino Lorenza Borrani.
Considered one of the greatest worldwide artists of the last decade, Yuja Wang gave away six encores that showed her virtuosity, talent and genuine condition. Transgression, avant-garde and passion define her hypnotic presence on stage, confirmed by the enthusiastic audience who attended the previous concerts at Kursaal San Sebastián (15), Sociedad Filarmónica de Bilbao (16), Baluarte Pamplona (17) and Auditorio Zaragoza (18).
She will come back to Spain on May 22th to perform a recital at Auditorio Nacional de Música in Madrid, included in the ‘Cycle of Great Performers – Fundación Scherzo’. It will be a unique opportunity to see and hear live the most exciting pianist of the moment.
Yuja Wang on tour in Spain with Chamber Orchestra of Europe
Yuja Wang returns to Spain in January 2018 to perform five concerts accompanied by Chamber Orchestra of Europe: Kursaal in San Sebastián (15), Sociedad Filarmónica de Bilbao (16), Baluarte in Pamplona (17), Auditorio in Zaragoza (18) and L’Auditori in Barcelona (20).
Considered one of the great world artists of the last decade, she will show a repertoire with pieces by Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Chopin with the prestigious chamber orchestra composed of musicians from all over Europe. She will arrive to Spain after starting this tour in Italy (Ferrara, Reggio Emilia).
Recognized as one of the most famous pianists worldwide, Yuja Wang caused a great sensation last year in Spain due to her performance in L’Oceanogràfic Valencia surrounded by jellyfish. She combines talent, virtuosity, energy, passion, sensitivity and connection with all audiences. We are in front of a transgressor, eclectic and avant-garde woman who is committed to society.
