This Friday, 16 September, Lars Vogt returns to Gateshead to open his second season as Music Director of the Royal Northern Sinfonia. This first trip of the season up North will also see him out and about in town doing pop-up performances with the orchestra, plus an appearance at the Lammermuir Festival on Sunday 18 September.
Lars’ second season at the helm explores Beethoven’s concertos – the five piano concertos, the ‘Choral Fantasy’ and the Triple Concerto together with Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, all of which are also being recorded for the Ondine label. This season will also include the orchestra’s first tour to Asia.
16 September’s concert features Mozart’s Piano Concert No.27, as well as Kodály’s Dances of Galánta and Mahler’s Fourth Symphony with soprano Rebecca Evans. Find out more on the Sage Gateshead website.
