Orchestre de Paris | Europe | August 2019
Aug 2019 - Aug 2019

Introduction

Daniel Harding will embark for the last time as Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris on a tour that will bring the orchestra and a cast of soloists to San Sebastian, Edinburgh and London in August 2019.

Antoine Tamestit (viola) will perform Berlioz’ Harold in Italy to mark the 150th anniversary of the death of the French composer at the Kursaal in San Sebastian and at Usher Hall in Edinburgh.

Emma Bell (soprano), Andrew Staples (tenor) and Florian Boesch (baritone) will join forces with the orchestra to perform Britten’s soul-searching pacifist masterpiece War Requiem in San Sebastian (alongside Donostia Choral Society and Orfeoi Txikia) and in Edinburgh (alongside Edinburgh Festival Chorus, Aidan Oliver Chorus Director, and the National Girls’ Choir of Scotland, and Christopher Bell Chorus Director).

After visiting the Quincena Musical in San Sebastian (20 and 21 August) and the Edinburgh International Festival (23 and 24 August), the orchestra will end the tour with a concert at the BBC Proms in London (26 August).
