THIS WEEK SEES CHRISTOPH KÖNIG RETURN TO THE TORONTO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA, an orchestra with which he enjoys a particularly warm and friendly relationship after his successful début here in November 2011.
In a very Germanic programme, he conducts the First Symphony of Johannes Brahms, Humperdinck’s not too often played Hänsel und Gretel Overture, and the Second Piano Concerto by Beethoven featuring the wonderful Argentinian pianist Ingrid Fliter.
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.
