Last weekend, Lars Vogt stepped in at the last minute to conduct and play with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra for the inaugural tour of their Mozart Momentum project.
Already garnering praise from the press, the tour began with two concerts at the Alte Oper Frankfurt, which featured two Mozart piano concerti as well as a piano quartet and a selection of lieder performed with soprano Louise Alder. The tour continues this week with concerts in Berlin (Philharmonie), Evian, Grenoble and Paris (Théâtre des Champs-Élysées). For more information regarding these concerts, check the Mahler Chamber Orchestra website.
This takes place on the back of Lars’s highly successful recital tour of North America with friends Christian and Tanja Tetzlaff, which took them to Carnegie Hall, New York; Wallis Annenberg Center, Los Angeles; Herbst Theatre, San Francisco and Vancouver Playhouse. The tour concluded at the Washington Library of Congress, where they received a glowing review in The Washington Post.
Lars spoke with the Vancouver Sun about his experiences of performing with the Trio here.
