JPO 2018 World Symphony Series Summer Season
14 March @ 08:00 - 17:00 SASTR150 – R345
The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra presents its World Symphony Series this March at the Linder Auditorium, one of Joburg’s most acoustically impressive concert venues.
The 2018 series sees a host of guest international conductors and musicians taking to the Joburg stage including Canadian-Caribbean conductor Kwamé Ryan, Dutch maestro Arjan Tien, celebrated German violinist Daniel Röhn, Indian-American pianist Pallavi Mahidhara and Britain’s charismatic father-son duo Alexander Baillie (cello) and Max Baillie (violin).
The World Symphony Series summer programme runs as follows:
March 7 & 8: Kwamé Ryan conducts the orchestra through works by Handel, Mozart and Beethoven. The evening opens with Handel’s sprightly sinfonia, The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba, followed by Mozart’s dramatic D minor Piano Concerto K466 and concludes with Beethoven’s great Hymn to Nature, his ‘Pastoral’ Symphony.
