Berlioz Harold in Italy
Beethoven Symphony No 6
Intellectual rigour and shattering passion: British conductor Daniel Harding is a remarkable force in European music. A regular International Festival visitor, he has been Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris – arguably France’s flagship orchestra – since 2016. As he nears the end of his fruitful tenure, he brings his orchestra to Edinburgh for two inspirational concerts.
Gloriously supple French viola player Antoine Tamestit is soloist in Berlioz’s colourful, Byron-inspired tour of Italy, from spiritual revelations high in the mountains to a wild orgy of brigands.
Harding concludes his programme with Beethoven’s radiant musical tribute to the natural world, complete with birdsong, bubbling streams, bucolic peasants and a cataclysmic storm.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Edinburgh International Festival: Orchestre de Paris 1 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
