Carlo Rizzi, conductor
Wagner: Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde
R. Strauss: Der Rosenkavalier suite
Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Op. 67
Carlo Rizzi ranks among today’s leading conductors. He is in high demand as a guest artist at the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, not least for the insight and integrity of his musicianship and the visceral energy and psychological depths of his interpretations.
In his debut concert with the SOI, Maestro Rizzi will lead Beethoven’s Symphony No. 5, arguably one of the best known symphonic works, and regarded by Hoffmann as “one of the most important works of all time.” The programme will also feature the prelude and liebestod from Wagner’s opera Tristan and Isolde, and the Rosenkavalier Suite by Richard Strauss.
