Bamberg Symphony with Hélène Grimaud to hold concert conducted by Jakub Hruša in Eldborg on 20 April 2024.

The Bamberg Symphony, one of Germany’s leading symphony orchestras, will be performing in Iceland for the first time on 20 April 2024. The concert will be conducted by the Czech Jakub Hruša who was recently appointed as the next Music Director of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London. In recent years, Hruša has achieved great success in his work as the principal conductor of the Bamberg Symphony, as well as being in high demand as a guest-conductor of many of the world’s top orchestras such as the Vienna, Berlin, and New York Philharmonic orchestras and the Chicago Symphony. 

Under the baton of Jakub Hruša, the Bamberg Symphony won the International Classical Music Award (ICMA) in 2022 for its recording of Anton Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony and again in 2023 for the recording of Hans Rott Symphony No. 1.
Jakub Hruša was chosen as conductor of the year in Germany’s 2023 Opus Klassik music awards.

The soloist in Robert Schumann’s piano concerto will be the award-winning French pianist Hélène Grimaud. Her passion for music is also reflected in her work in the field of environmental protection and human rights, for which she is also known.

The program will undoubtedly be a special treat for Wagner lovers, since the Bamberg Symphony will be performing the prelude to the first act of Lohengrin and the Tannhäuser overture. The program also features music by two of Wagner’s contemporaries, Johannes Brahms’s Symphony no.3 and Robert Schumann’s piano concerto performed by Hélène Grimaud.

The Bamberg Symphony’s concert in Iceland will be the orchestra’s first on its way to a tour of the United States, which will include, among other venues, Carnegie Hall in New York.
