Return to the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra and the "Wiener Festwochen"

Andrés Orozco-Estrada is a very welcome guest at the Gewandhaus Orchestra in Leipzig. Following his enthusiastic reception as stand-in for Dennis Russell Davies in March 2006 he was immediately recruited for 2009 and 2010. Andrés Orozco-Estrada will soon return to the conducting podium making his fourth appearance with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, giving concerts on 31 May, 1 and 2 June. He has devised a demanding and multifaceted programme for the Grand Concert: in the first half, the renowned pianist Ewa Kupiec will be in the limelight with the great Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski's Paganini Variations. After the interval Andrés Orozco-Estrada will conduct Ravel's orchestral arrangement of “Alborada del Gracioso” and Rachmaninov's Symphonic Dances in the Leipzig Gewandhaus. The conductor has also been engaged once more for the Vienna Festwochen. He achieved his breakthrough when he was recognised as a “Vienna Wonder” in the context of the celebrated festival in the Vienna Musikverein in 2004. This year he will give performances with the Tonkünstler Orchestra (of which he has been chief conductor since 2009) of Brahms' Symphony No.2 in D major and Tchaikovsky's Concerto for Violin with soloist Patricia Kopatchinskaja.
