It is with great pleasure that Christoph König returns to conduct the fabulous Oregon Symphony Orchestra this week in a programme dedicated to some of the iconic pieces in repertoire such as Beethoven’s world famous Symphony no. 5, and Rachmaninov’s lesser known Isle of Dead. Stefan Jackiw , one of the most interesting and inspiring violinists of the young generation, is going to play Lutosławski’s Partita for Violin and Orchestra, and Dvořák’s Romance, refreshing alternatives to the mainstream violin repertoire.
Christoph König conducts the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in a programme of Rachmaninov Symphony No. 2, Mussorgsky Scherzo in B-flat Major (Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Premiere, and Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2, featuring the fabulously gifted 2010 Chopin Competition winner Yulianna Avdeeva.
