The exceptional Concertgebouworkest in Harpa
The Concertgebouworkest is to give a concert in Harpa on November 10th. Ticket sales will commence at noon on Friday, October 15th.
The Concertgebouworkest is to give a concert in Harpa on November 10th. The concert is a part of Harpa´s 10 year anniversary celebration this year, and will mark the orchestra’s first ever visit to Iceland.
Klaus Mäkelä, the orchestra´s conductor, is only 25 years old but already one of the most sought-after young conductors around.
The outstanding young conductor now comes to Harpa with two highlights of the symphonic repertoire. With its rebelliously contrasting movements, Dmitri Shostakovich’s epic Sixth Symphony unsettled Soviet critics in 1939. In contrast, Tchaikovsky’s deeply melancholic Sixth, with the telling epithet »Pathétique«, was – ten days before his death – his farewell to the world.
Ticket sales will commence at noon on Friday, October 15th.
