Sumptuos festival summer and TV

Haydn, Paganini and Beethoven are on the programme of Andrés Orozco-Estrada’s Paris début on 27 June as he takes up the baton in the Opéra Comique with the Radio France Philharmonic Orchestra. France Musique is broadcasting this concert live. Five festival concerts flank this conducting engagement in his diary: on 22 June Andrés Orozco-Estrada and the Tonkünstler Orchestra will sound in the festival season in Grafenegg, the “Austrian Glyndebourne”, with the Midsummer Night Gala. Also performing are the mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, the tenor Michael Schade, and the violinist Vadim Repin, all artists of distinction, who will present a broad musical spectrum ranging from Rossini to Bernstein. For anyone who cannot catch it live, there will also be the chance to enjoy this concert on TV on Friday 22 June at 9.20pm on ORF 2 or on Saturday 14 July at 8.15pm on 3sat. On 7 July in the Wolkenturm, an open-air stage both architecturally and acoustically exceptional, a “notte italiana” is on the programme. In addition to Italian operatic arias sung by the Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas, the Tonkünstlers conducted by Andrés Orozco-Estrada will be performing Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony No. 4 in A major op. 90 and other works. Andrés Orozco-Estrada then makes his début at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival on 14 July in Lübeck with Wagner’s Tristan Prelude, Mendelssohn’s First Walpurgis Night and Richard Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration. On 15 July the same pieces will constitute the concert programme in Flensburg – also part of the same festival. Finally on 23 August the Colombian conductor will reach a further peak in his career performing Haydn’s Creation when he opens the Grafenegg International Music Festival 2012 together with the Tonkünstler Orchestra, the Arnold Schoenberg Choir, Mojca Erdmann, Ian Bostridge and Gerald Finley. Now in its sixth year with Rudolf Buchbinder as artistic director, the festival has long ago outgrown its status as a “hidden gem”.
