Andris Nelsons, one of the most sought-after young conductors on the international scene today, conducts the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra (German Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks), one of the most often-recorded ensembles in the world. The concert takes place in the stunning Herkules Hall of the Munich Residenz.
The programme, performed by Andris Nelsons and the Symphonieorchester, is just varicolored as it is fascinating: works by American composers like Charles Ives and John Adams are heard along with Antonin Dvorák’s ‘New World’ Symphony and Igor Stravinsky’s ‘Le chant du rossignol’. Dvorák’s work is said to be one of the first important symphonies written in the USA. Strawinsky’s Rossignol was the inspiration for Adam’s composition. A thrilling American Evening’ par excellence!
