This week, Andrei Ioniță makes his Danish National Symphony Orchestra debut with two performances of Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, under Christian Kluxen (who replaces Yuri Temirkanov). Next week, he travels to Hamburg to perform the Dvořák again in his Hamburger Symphoniker debut, under Ion Marin. Recently, he made his Bridgewater Hall debut with the BBC Philharmonic with the same concerto. Peter Connors from Bachtrack gave Andrei a glowing review for this performance, writing that he ‘proved to be an ideal interpreter. He made the music his own and yet seemed to be at one with the orchestra throughout.’
Later in June, Andrei returns to Hamburg to participate in the Martha Argerich Festival Hamburg, with both engagements acting as a precursor to his season as Hamburger Symphoniker’s Artist-in-Residence 2019/20. This residency will see him perform concerti under Sylvain Cambreling, Kirill Karabits, Andris Poga, and Roland Kluttig; as well as giving a recital of works by Kodaly, Schumann and Shostakovich.
